Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Our Law program provides an international learning experience that is one of the first of its kind for a Canadian university.

Earn a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Honours Science from Laurier and a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Sussex, United Kingdom (UK) in only six years. As an added perk, an LSAT score is not required for admission. 

Combine your scientific knowledge and critical inquiry skills with a law degree. You’ll be prepared to advocate for important issues at the intersection of law and science, or pursue a number of law- and science-related fields.

Discover Life at Laurier

Through the Virtual Laurier Experience you can view on-demand Open House webinars, enjoy guided virtual tours of both our campuses, connect with a student ambassador and get all the need-to-know information on admissions, campus life and more – all from the comfort of home.
