NAC offers law degree with University of Saskatchewan

NAC partners with University of Saskatchewan (U of S) to offer a four-year law degree in Iqaluit starting in September, 2017.

NAC president Joe Kunuk said the 25 new seats will be a major boost to the region. “A law program will graduate educated professionals who will help move Nunavut forward,” he said.

Although NAC considered several universities, it chose U of S for both its law program, and its commitment to Indigenous advancement and education. With the agreement signed, there’s a lot of work to be done.

“Creating a law degree with a university is a complex process, so we’ll be working hard in the coming months,” said Eric Comeau, Dean, Nunatta Campus. “People are already contacting us about the program, which is encouraging. We will start accepting applications in November and we will make an announcement at that time.”

Students in the program may be eligible for financial assistance through the Department of Education or regional Inuit organizations.
