CERTIFICATE IN LAW AND JUSTICE

The 30 credit certificate programme is designed to meet the needs of those with a desire to broaden their knowledge of the law at work in society, as well as law

enforcement officers and government supervisory personnel working for the federal or provincial governments in parole or aftercare services. It allows a part-time
