Students in the Legal Studies MA program from Carleton University participate in ongoing research and seminar series sponsored by the Department of Law and Legal Studies, including the Jurisprudence Center and the Graduate Culture Seminar.
With a location in the nation’s capital, Carleton is in close proximity to Parliament, the Supreme Court of Canada and various government departments directly and indirectly involved with law. In addition, offices of many interest groups and social movements concerned with legal and social change provide Carleton with unrivaled resources for research and policy studies in law and governance. Career opportunities are just down the road.
Alumni are pursuing successful careers as researchers and advisors in various levels of governmental departments and NGOs, as well as careers in academia.
