UCalgary to offer French certification for law students through UOttawa partnership

February 12, 2019

Thanks to a new partnership with the University of Ottawa, University of Calgary law students will be able to complete the Certification in Common Law in French. The CCLF gives law students with competencies in French the opportunity to obtain certification from UOttawa’s French Common Law program. “For students to have access to legal education in French, thereby allowing them to have access to positions with the federal government, the courts, eventually, hopefully in the judiciary,” said UCalgary Professor Caroline Magnan. “The other aspect is to help increase access to justice for Francophone litigants here in Alberta.” 660 City Newsreports that UCalgary is the second school—after the University of Saskatchewan—to offer UOttawa’s French certification. 660 City News | UCalgary (AB)
