University v. Student: A Contractual Understanding of Higher Education in Canada
Seo Yun Yang is currently a B.C.L./LL.B student at McGill Faculty of Law, where she will serve as Editor in Chief of the McGill Law Journal in its upcoming volume. With an interest in education policy, she specialized her undergraduate career at Harvard University on comparative studies of higher education institutions in a knowledge economy. In law, Seo Yun is concerned with the interactions between the private law, such as contracts and intellectual property, and institutions of a public nature. In particular, this fellowship paper analyzes the contractual relationship between a Canadian university and its students to shed light on the legal challenges facing educational institutions today.
