The Faculty of Law hosts a number of Centres and Institutes which bring together strategic partners in order to pursue research and disseminate knowledge about important contemporary issues.

The David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights will play a vital role in articulating Canada's constitutional vision to the broader world.  The Centre will be devoted to research and education in the area of constitutional rights in Canada.  The cornerstone of the Centre will be a legal clinic that will bring together students, faculty and members of the bar to work on significant constitutional cases.

The Centre for the Legal Profession is a catalyst for dialogue about the capacities, judgment and actions necessary for effective lawyering, and about the idea of community leadership and public service as essential to becoming a "good" lawyer. As a gathering place for leading voices from the spheres of the academic, private practice, judicial and public interest communities, the Centre seeks to forge a stronger link between the study of law, the practice of law, and the implications of law. 

Centre for Innovation Law and PolicyThe Centre for Innovation Law and Policy (CILP) is devoted to the study of the interface of law and technology, and encourages interdisciplinary dialogue between Law, the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.  The CILP puts on conferences, lectures, and a speaker series, and administers a variety of research support programs for faculty and students working on technology-related topics.

Capital Markets InstituteThe Capital Markets Institute (CMI) is a joint venture between the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law and its Rotman School of Management. The CMI seeks to lead the effort in determining how capital markets mechanisms and institutions should be designed in order to create a superior environment for investors and issuers in Canada.
