Administrative history

The Legal Studies Program, established in 1975 within the Department of Extension, engages learners in non-degree legal and justice education opportunities. It is a public legal education organization that has as its mandate "to engage Albertans and Canadians in lifelong learning about the law that affects their daily lives". Major components of the program include the following: LawNow (publication and print and electronic resources), public information websites (on a variety of legal topics and issues), and consulting services. In June 2007, the Legal Studies Program set up new offices off campus (201, 10350 - 124 Street), and reclaimed their former title of the Legal Resources Centre. They continue to operate as a non-profit, public legal education organization. Professor Lois Gander, who has been instrumental in the Legal Resource Centre and the Legal Studies Program since their inception, completed the transaction to purchase the Legal Service Program's assets from the University of Alberta for one Canadian dollar.
