Since our founding in the mid-1970s, the Faculty of Law at the University of Victoria has sought to make a unique contribution to legal education in Canada, striving for innovation in the classroom, creativity and leadership in research, with due attention to the needs of Canada’s most marginalized communities. Home to some of Canada’s most innovative and dynamic thinkers, the Faculty of Law has created a vibrant, student-centered learning environment based on a commitment to social justice, humane professionalism and civic responsibility, and critical interdisciplinary policy-oriented research and teaching. And we do all of this in Canada’s most beautiful urban paradise. We are also a faculty with a commitment to diversification across our ranks, particularly, although not limited to: racialization, marginalized sexualities, gender identity, Indigeneity and disability. The Faculty of Law participates in the activities of the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives (CAPI). CAPI was established in 1987 as an important element of the University of Victoria’s plan to expand and strengthen its links with universities and other institutions in the Asia-Pacific region, especially with China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Korea, and the island states of Oceania. The Centre’s primary mandate is to conduct and facilitate research on policy issues related to the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the Centre serves as a regional resource facility to the University and to the larger community.
