Indigenous Peoples, Intercultural Learning, and Anti-racism

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) called on law schools across Canada to teach students about the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal-Crown relations.

In addition to the required TRC course, upper-year students have the opportunity to take elective courses dealing with Indigenous legal issues, including Comparative and International Indigenous Rights, First Nations Business and Taxation, and First Nations Governance and Economic Development.
