Arctic College to create NU-based law degree program in partnership with uSask

August 24, 2016

Nunavut Arctic College, through the Government of Nunavut, has elected to partner with the University of Saskatchewan for the design and delivery of a new Nunavut-based law degree program. The stated goal of the project is to increase the number of lawyers practicing in NU. The new program will also bring the total number of degree programs offered by NAC to three, which aligns with the territory’s mission to help more degree-seeking students study in NU. “Ensuring Inuit students have the opportunity to study law in Nunavut is a natural extension of our commitment to Indigenous initiatives and to Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation calls to action,” said uSask President and Vice-Chancellor Peter Stoicheff.
