Universal and Specialty Practice

This stream is intended to provide general guidance to those who may be considering a small or specialty practice or are currently undecided as to their career goals. It covers a broad range of courses that will be relevant to many areas of practice. Students are also encouraged to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities, including Western Law’s legal clinics and advocacy competitions.

The diagram below provides guidance to those contemplating a practice in commercial, criminal or family/estates law. There are many other specialty areas (eg environmental law, tax law) that are not represented here. Students interested in these areas are encouraged to seek advice from the relevant faculty members at Western Law.
