Public Legal Education & Curriculum Development


Our education mandate

A core element of ILRU’s mandate is to support engagement with Indigenous law in the academy and the broader community. We develop resources about Indigenous laws and critical Indigenous legal issues for diverse audiences. We deliver guest lectures, and we also produce both academic materials and curricula designed for teaching Indigenous law in post-secondary settings, including the UVic Faculty of Law J.D. and J.D./J.I.D. programs. We regularly hire and train law students to work with us, including through co-op work placements. We also offer a for-credit intensive course on Indigenous legal methodologies through the UVic Faculty of Law. Please visit the Indigenous Summer Intensive Course webpage for further information or contact the UVic Faculty of Law Admissions Officer at 250-721-8155 or
