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. We offer a smaller, intimate university experience in Kingston, a charming, dynamic city.

Queen’s Law attracts outstanding students from across Canada. With a faculty dedicated to exceptional teaching and scholarship, Queen’s offers a comprehensive academic program with a particular emphasis on a legal education that is both national and global in scope. Among our international initiatives, every spring we offer a unique international and comparative law program at our own Queen’s University International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in the UK. We also offer a wide range of international student exchange opportunities that include leading law schools in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and South Africa. Our visitors’ program includes a diverse range of international scholars, and our curriculum includes an increasingly strong focus on global perspectives in the study of law. As our international programs continue to expand, we aim to be “Canada’s Global Law School.”

For students with financial need, we provide an exceptional level of support. In 2007-08, Queen’s gave over $1.7 million to law students with financial need, making Queen’s Law among the most generous law schools in Canada.

Queen’s Law is 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, and in various international organizations, and are accepted into leading graduate programs in Canada and abroad.
