Welcome to Robson Hall

Robson Hall, the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba, is a wonderful place to study law.  Robson Hall is known for its sense of community between students, faculty, and alumni.  As the only law school in the province, we take our mandate to produce excellent lawyers extremely seriously.  Classes with a small student to professor ratio, our own state of the art building, and numerous opportunities for students to work with practicing lawyers and judges are just a few things that make the Robson Hall law school experience special. 

For almost 100 years we have graduated excellent lawyers who are experts in all areas of law, and who practice all around the world.   We offer a J.D. degree, as well as the LL.M. degree.  The J.D. degree may permit a concentration on Aboriginal legal issues, Business Law, or Human Rights.  These three areas of teaching and research are particularly germane to issues facing Manitoba, Canada, and the international community.

Thank you for your interest in Robson Hall!
