The Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie has launched a new website dedicated to highlighting the work of its students, faculty, and staff in the areas of Aboriginal and Indigenous law.

Naiomi Metallic, an associate professor and the Chancellor’s Chair in Aboriginal Law and Policy, says the inspiration for Abajignmuen — which means “giving back” in Mìgmaq — came from recognizing the hard work of students on papers and assignments in Aboriginal and Indigenous law courses.

“There is valuable information in this work that can benefit Indigenous communities, practitioners, and members of the public,” says Prof. Metallic. “I believe there is a significant need for education and legal information in the area of Aboriginal and Indigenous law by the general public, the Indigenous community, and the legal profession.”

The website currently features more than 50 student projects and will continue to grow every year, allowing those working and studying in this area to give back to the broader community by sharing what they are learning in an accessible way. The values and principles behind this project are in line with the Weldon Tradition — a belief that the law school’s students and graduates have an obligation to use their knowledge to serve the community for the greater good.
