UOttawa to receive Justice Canada funding for Indigenous Law certificate

The University of Ottawa’s Indigenous Law Certificate Program will receive almost $600K in support over three years from the Department of Justice Canada. The certificate is taught entirely in French and aims to revitalize Indigenous legal systems and ensure access to legal education for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. The Visual Laboratory on Indigenous Legal Orders will use short audio-visual vignettes featuring stories from participating communities to increase awareness and understanding of Indigenous justice systems. “This new certificate program aims to continue in our Faculty commitment to decolonize our programs and promote Indigenous law, while increasing access to justice and legal studies for Indigenous students,” said UOttawa Dean, Faculty of Law (Civil Law Section) Dr Marie-Eve Sylvestre.
