Description Western has been a national leader among law schools in Canada through the Areas of Concentration. The Areas of Concentration enable students to combine the breadth of the core curriculum with real depth in a particular subject area. Students who complete an Area of Concentration will have this noted on their transcripts. At present, we offer concentrations in Business Law; Criminal Law; Intellectual Property, Information, and Technology Law; and Taxation. In First Year, students take eight required courses: Constitutional Law; Contracts; Criminal Law; The Foundations of Canadian Law; Legal Ethics and Professionalism; Legal Research, Writing, and Advocacy; Property and Torts.
