The Legal Studies Honours Thesis is an independent research project on a subject of a student's own choosing. The Honours Thesis program presents the opportunity to further develop critical thinking and analytical skills, while enhancing understanding of how to access and use legal materials. While drawing on the guidance and support of a Legal Studies supervisor, the student is responsible for conceiving and executing their particular research project. A student might pursue an Honours Thesis project to enhance their research and writing skills, seek opportunity to work one-on-one with a supervisor from the Legal Studies program, and prepare for graduate level scholarship.
