/ Law Faculty




Currently, the Faculty hosts eight research chairs. These chairs are often the result of a partnership with a private partner who, through a donation, wishes to advance research in a particular domain. Recipients include distinguished researchers, interns and students who have proposed research topics that are both promising and innovative. Each chair makes a significant contribution to the national and international reputation of the Faculty of Law.

Each year, the Faculty can award 40+ prizes for excellence to our most deserving students. Mostly targeting undergraduate students, these prizes recognize a student’s superior university performance on an academic level and for involvement in paralegal activities. Thanks to the generosity of more than 20 private donors and law firms, in 2015-2016, the Faculty awarded 39 prizes to 26 students in the Faculty. In total, $23,500 was awarded to exceptional students, providing them with the financial support needed to make their studies a success.


For the 2015-2016 school year, the Faculty proudly distributed 49 scholarships—representing a total of $171,850, all financed by donors—to our most deserving students.  Thanks to the generosity of more than 30 donors and law firms, students were able to apply for a greater number of scholarships, created to reward excellence in university studies or for involvement in non-academic activities, to alleviate financial burden or increase student mobility. When you donate to an existing scholarship fund or even create a new one, you are directly contributing to student success!
