The Law Teaching Network (LTN) project is an ongoing, multi-year partnership between the Faculty of Law and McGill's Teaching and Learning Services (TLS). The project aims to generate a shared commitment to excellent, innovative and engaging teaching and learning practices in the Faculty. Since its inception in 2010, significant headway has been made on many program initiatives at both the individual and Faculty level.

In 2006, the Deputy Provost (Student Life & Learning) and Teaching and Learning Services launched the first (Re)Design Initiative with the goal of transforming the student learning experience by channeling major university resources to a single project. This initiative funds projects that encourage faculty to explore creative and effective ways of engaging students in the classroom. An important aspect of these projects is that they foster transformative rather than incremental change for teaching and learning by combining university-wide resources from all units that provide support.
McGill’s two most recent strategic academic plans, “Strengths and Aspirations (2006)” and “ASAP 2012: Achieving Strategic Academic Priorities” have highlighted the importance of research for undergraduate education at McGill as a research-intensive, student-centred university. The Teaching-Research Nexus Project (the “Nexus Project”), mandated by APC’s Subcommittee on Teaching and Learning in 2009 and led by Teaching and Learning Services, aims to promote the links between research and undergraduate teaching.
