The College of Law was established in 1912. It was the third independent college at the University of Saskatchewan. The first students began classes in 1913. The mission of the College of Law is to provide a critical and reflective education so that students have the best possible academic preparation for assuming professional responsibilities in the humane operation of the legal system and for all vocations in which an understanding of law is necessary or helpful. In 1975, the College of Law established the Native Law Centre. The Centre was designed to promote the development of law and legal systems in ways that would benefit Aboriginal communities in Canada. A half-time program was introduced in 1979 to allow flexibility for students and to increase equity. Upon successful completion of their studies, students will receive a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.). The Master's of Laws (LL.M.) program offers opportunities for students to conduct graduate work in areas such as human rights, international, environmental, criminal and commercial law.
