Joint Degrees

Students interested in pursuing law and economics in greater depth can pursue a joint degree:


Students enrolled in the J.D. Program who wish to focus on law and economics can take advantage of study and research opportunities in a broad range of subject areas with a significant law-economics interface.

Subject areas with a significant economic component include competition policy, law and development, corporate governance, tax and tax policy, business organizations, economic regulation, environmental control, and international trade regulation. Any student enrolled in the J.D. program is free to take any or all of these courses. (Available courses may change from year to year - see the course list for those available in the current year.)

As well, students can benefit from teachers from several related disciplines: the Department of Political Science, the Department of  Economics, and the Joseph L. Rotman School of Management.

Law and Economics Workshop

The Law and Economics Workshop brings Canadian and international experts and practitioners to the law school on a regular basis to share their knowledge and current research with faculty and students. The seminar may be taken for academic credit.
