Members of the Osgoode faculty are among the most productive and distinguished legal scholars in Canada, pursuing ambitious and diverse research programs. Students are instructed in the special techniques of legal research and writing which are essential to the educated lawyer. There are opportunities to undertake research in satisfaction of some course requirements as well as opportunities for qualified students to engage in intensive supervised research programs. Students also participate in the editing of the Osgoode Hall Law Journal and act as research assistants to members of faculty. The research enterprise of faculty and students is supported by the largest law library in the Commonwealth, equipped with a computer laboratory and drawing increasingly on new technology. Four research centres at the Law School provide a focus for collaborative research: the York University Centre for Public Law and Public Policy, the Institute for Feminist Legal Studies, the Refugee Law Unit of the Centre for Refugee Studies and the newly-endowed Nathanson Centre for the Study of Organized Crime and Corruption.
