The University of Saskatchewan Nunavut Law Program at the Nunavut Arctic College has received funding from the federal government to address the need for more practicing lawyers in Nunavut. Business Insider reports that the funding will enable students to engage in experiential learning opportunities in legal advocacy and will establish a legal clinic in Iqaluit where they can gain hands-on law practice experience. The program is a partnership between Nunavut Arctic College and the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. "This funding will help us provide our students with new opportunities to engage actively with the legal profession, obtain hands on practical skills, and their knowledge of Inuit Traditional Law,” said Stephen Mansell, Director of USask’s Nunavut Law Program.
