Welcome to the Public Law Group at the Faculty of Ottawa, Common Law section. We think that the University of Ottawa has one of the largest number of public law specialists in the country.
We have a large number of professors researching and teaching across the breadth of the public law spectrum including Charter, federalism, the unwritten constitution, administrative law, language law, aboriginal law, immigration and refugee law, labour law, criminal law, human rights, etc. And we are the only law school in the nation’s capital, giving us unparalleled access to Parliament, the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court, many administrative agencies and government ministries, including the Department of Justice.
In order to learn more about the sort of work that we do, we invite you to check our website regularly to keep you informed regarding events and publications that deal with breaking public law issues.
