Welcome to the
UBC Centre for Constitutional Law and Legal Studies
The UBC Centre for Constitutional Law and Legal Studies serves as an intellectual home to UBC faculty and others who are working on research connected to constitutional law, constitutionalism, the rule of law, the separation of powers, rights and liberties, the philosophy of law, and related legal topics. The Centre is committed to the academic exchange of heterodox ideas and diverse viewpoints at a time where reasonable disagreement and debate are endangered by political polarization.
The Centre is based in the Department of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science, within UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The Centre also includes affiliates from UBC Vancouver, the Allard School of Law and elsewhere.
If you are a faculty member, a student, a member of the legal community or just someone interested in legal issues, we hope you will join us at some of our public events.
