Queen’s Faculty of Law is renowned for its special combination of academic excellence and community spirit, placing it within the first rank of Canadian law schools. Queen’s offers a smaller, intimate university experience set in the dynamic city of Kingston, Ontario.
Queen’s Law attracts outstanding students from across Canada. With a faculty dedicated to exceptional teaching and scholarship, Queen’s offers a comprehensive and rigorous academic program with a particular emphasis on a legal education that is both national and global in scope. Among our international initiatives, we are the only Canadian law school that operates a summer international law study abroad program at our own Queen’s University International Study Centre in the UK. We also offer a wide range of international exchange opportunities from Asia to Europe, a diverse range of international scholars as visitors to Queen’s, and an increasingly strong focus on global perspectives in all aspects of our legal curriculum.
For students with financial need, I am proud to report that Queen’s Law leads Canadian schools in the level of bursary support it offers its students with financial need.
Queen’s Law is also responsive to the diverse interests and career aspirations of our students, with a placement rate for our graduates that is among the very highest of any Canadian law school. Our graduates find placements in a wide range of Canada’s leading law firms large and small, in all types of public service work, in various international organizations, and in leading graduate programs in Canada and abroad.
