In 2011, the Faculty of Law at Thompson Rivers University became Canada’s first new Faculty of Law in 33 years. 2013-14 will be its third year of operation.

Applicants with backgrounds in all areas of law are welcome; however, special consideration will be given to applicants with a demonstrated interest and experience in Business Law, Legal Research and Writing, Family Law, and Environmental Law.
