This course is designed to familiarize students with core research, analysis and writing skills. You will work extensively with the legal problem-solving skills required within a common law regime, becoming familiar with creating commonly used legal documents and critical analysis. The primarily assignment-based nature of this part of the course requires a significant and “steady” time commitment. The instructors assume that students will approach the course, and the assignments required as part of the course, in a professional manner.


This course is only open to students in the Graduate Diploma in Foundations of Canadian Law program; it is not open to LLM students.
