The Faculty of Law has a history of innovation in our curriculum, methods of teaching, and programs. We are proud of our special learning environment. It is our goal to provide our students with the knowledge and skills important to a legal education along with the opportunity to put that knowledge and skill into action in ways that contribute to the personal development of our students and to the betterment of our community. Experiential learning is a centrepiece of our curriculum. We offer a variety of clinical opportunities for students in all years of study. We operate two poverty law clinics, Legal Assistance of Windsor and Community Legal Aid, as well as the first Canadian law school based mediation program, the University of Windsor Mediation Service. The Windsor Pro Bono Students Canada program is active in linking law students with supervising lawyers to provide pro bono legal assistance to individuals, groups, and organizations. These clinics, our mooting program, and other experiential courses help students develop important “lawyering” skills such as interviewing, counselling, writing, drafting, negotiation, advocacy, research, and problem solving. Our graduates are exceptionally good at these skills. The Paul Martin Law Library with its two computer labs provides an essential resource for the delivery of our program.
