THE CENTER FOR EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
Researchers say "learning by doing" results in 90% retention rates—far beyond the traditional 10% from classroom lectures.
Our new center brings all of our experiential learning programs under one roof. It encourages collaboration across legal disciplines and provides a focal point for any idea that relates to the practice of law.
We encourage all students to participate in some form of experiential learning—from programs that provide services ranging from civil litigation to overturning wrongful convictions, to externships at major law firms, businesses and non-profits, to participation in our highly regarded and award-winning oral advocacy programs. Our goal is to provide students with a deeper understanding of what it means to practice law and to be career-ready upon graduation.
The breadth and depth of our programs are important. But the core of any educational institution is the strength of its faculty. We offer the very best teachers and mentors the legal academy has to offer—from podium to practicum. It takes only a few moments with a BC Law professor to understand that they have a passion for teaching and for the higher calling of law that cannot be matched anywhere else.
