Project overview:

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.
