Student and Alumni Success

TRU Law students are motivated to showcase their talent in a variety of ways and achieve success in many forms. In terms of employment, students find jobs in private practice, with government and public interest organizations, in clerkships and as in-house counsel.

Our students also land international internships, compete in provincial and national moots, actively organize and engage in on-campus TRU Law and student-led events, and continuously lend their talent and enthusiasm to a variety of other functions and initiatives. TRU Law alumni are engaged and give back.
