Law, Society and Justice (300. L1) and Law, Society and Justice with Math (300. L2) 

The Law, Society and Justice concentration focuses on areas of Social Science that study the social, historical, economic and political foundations of our modern world. How are societies organized? How are economic, political, and legal systems constructed and interconnected? How should we manage scarce resources? What is the difference between justice and law? These are some of the questions you will examine from a multidisciplinary perspective through various Social Science concentration courses.

When applying to Law, Society and Justice, students will have the option to select LSJ (300.L1) or LSJ with Math (300. L2). Students in Law, Society and Justice with Math take Calculus and Linear Algebra in the place of two Social Science course choices.

Students in the Law, Society and Justice concentrations can apply to the Honours after their first semester and are selected based on their academic standing and a letter of intent. Students in the Honours Distinction are enrolled in enriched sections of certain courses and engage more deeply with their program through various activities, including special guest lectures, site visits, group seminars, and social events. Information sessions will be held during the Fall semester to inform students about how to apply.

WHO SHOULD TAKE IT?

If you want to better understand social inequities and be a champion for social change, if you are interested in the legal, political and economic systems that govern our country, then the Law, Society and Justice concentration would be a perfect fit for you.

If you are strong in math, consider choosing Law, Society and Justice with Math. You must meet the entrance requirement of 75% or higher in high school math TS or SN (both Sec IV and V). 

WHERE DOES IT LEAD?

The Law, Society and Justice profile is a great steppingstone for a wide variety of university programs, including studies in Law, Politics, Economics, International Development, and the Environment.

Completing Calculus 1 and Linear Algebra will also make you eligible for most business programs in university.
