Research Series

The TRU Faculty of Law Research Series is a collection of research presentations organised by the Faculty of Law Research Committee. These events spotlight the current research being done in the faculty of law. Presentations are normally on works-in progress, and they sometimes include co-presenters that are from other university disciplines or student research assistants. Following each presentation, the faculty and students who gathered have an opportunity to ask questions and engage in a conversation with the presenters.

The Research Series has become an important part of the life of the Faculty of Law. Not only does it provide an opportunity for faculty members to share their research, but it also helps foster an active scholarly community committed to the open, free and scholarly exchange of ideas.
