Introduction Located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan is the oldest law school in Western Canada. The College has produced many successful graduates who have assumed distinguished careers in various professions. One notable alumni member is the late John Diefenbaker, former Prime Minister of Canada and University of Saskatchewan chancellor, who is buried at the University close to the Diefenbaker Centre.
Moreover, the College is home to three research centres that not only provide specialized and interdisciplinary research and services but also more opportunities for the academic and professional advancement of students. These facilities include the Centre for the Study of Agriculture, Law and Environment, Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, and Native Law Centre. The College is also affiliated with the Estey Centre for Law and Economics in International Trade, 'an independent "think tank" for the collaborative study and dissemination of the legal and economic implications of international trade agreements and globalization.' Moreover, the College is a leader in the Indigenous Peoples and Justice Programs (IPJP), which 'are intended to create a focus at the University of Saskatchewan for teaching and research related to Indigenous peoples and justice.'
