Building on the past, innovating for the future
The Faculty of Law’s Strategic Framework, a planning document for the next five years, was developed at the Faculty over the winter of 2013—2014 and ratified in the spring of 2014. It was created not only to encourage and ensure the continual evolution of the Queen’s Faculty of Law, but also to work within the context of a number of specific challenges.
The Strategic Planning Committee – a multifactorial group including representatives of the faculty, alumni, professional and student communities – have identified the following as our strategic goals for the Framework:
- Dynamic faculty
An intellectually vigorous, engaged and diverse faculty that enhances a vibrant research and teaching culture.
- Innovative education
An innovative law student experience and curriculum that is responsive to a changing legal profession.
- Student success
Quality education that positions students to attain their career objectives.
- Engaging atmosphere
A distinctively collegial, diverse and inclusive environment for faculty, staff, and students.
Concrete goals to meet contemporary challenges
Meeting the above objectives will take distinct steps. The Framework outlines the five goals that must be met to ensure the Faculty is prepared for contemporary challenges in legal education.
- Expand enrollment
- Increase faculty and research footprint
- Deliver educational outcomes that ensure student success
- Enrich the Faculty community as a collegial, diverse and inclusive institution
- Create varied and innovative revenue streams
