We are Canada's most innovative law school

Think Calgary is just about oil and gas? It’s time to remove that thinking from your brain. Calgary is home to a thriving innovation ecosystem, becoming the preferred place for start-ups and tech giants alike, from financial institutions to green energy solution providers. In fact, in 2020, Calgary companies captured $353 million in venture capital funding through 33 deals, and the start-up community is expected to triple the size of the tech sector in the city and create 30,000 new jobs by 2031. Our city also has the highest head office concentration per capita in Canada. And do you know what all those organizations need? Lawyers.

UCalgary Law will prepare you for the legal marketplace of the future, whether that’s in the evolving energy industry, environmental law and sustainability, family law, Indigenous law, or any other area you want to practice.
