Undergraduate Law students have many opportunities to partake in research, both inside and outside of their curriculum. Here are a few options to complement your studies with research into law, legal studies and more!
Tutorial in Law (LAWS 4901/4902) is a faculty supervised half-credit (0.5 credit) course that provides students with the opportunity to undertake study in an area that is not currently addressed by courses (including advanced level or special topic courses) in the Department of Law and Legal Studies. Students have the opportunity to develop a course that aligns with their own interests and to explore alternative research or presentation methods.
Honours Research Essay (LAWS 4908) is a full year course (1.0 credit) course dedicated to an in-depth study in a topic of interest. Students have the opportunity to bring together their skills and knowledge in methods and theory with their curiosity and passion for a specific research area to produce an independent, faculty supervised, research project.
Research Mentorship (IPAF 4900) is a half-credit (0.5 credit) course that enables you to gain research skills and experience by collaborating with a professor on their research project.
Carleton University Research Opportunity (CUROP) is a summer undergraduate research internship program that enables students to work on a research project of their choosing in collaboration with a faculty member.
Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS) offers students an opportunity to gain hands-on research experience by working on a faculty-supervised research project. Students can sign up for one term or for a full year and complete up to 150 hours of paid research.
