Orientation for undergraduate students

Welcome to the Faculty of Law!

Congratulations! You are about to embark on an incredible journey of learning and discovery. You are probably wondering what you need to do next.

The following registration material will take you through the steps to prepare for the start of your law studies, right up to the first day of classes.


Integration Day, Tuesday, September 2, 2014 is an exciting introduction to your new life at the law school, and to the vibrant and challenging discipline that is law.  It  provides an opportunity for first year students to meet many professors in the Faculty, particularly those professors teaching in the first-year program, to tackle a case study that brings out the multifaceted dimensions of law, legal education and legal discourse, and to get acquainted with  classmates in a plenary and small group setting.

Tous les cours de première année qui devaient avoir lieu le 2 septembre ont été annulés pour faire place à la journée d’intégration. Le 2 septembre, les étudiantes et étudiants devront arriver dans le Moot Court à 9 h 30 tapant.
