The MA in Applied Legal Studies program has received a 2011 Award of Excellence from the Canadian Association for University Continuing Education.

The prestigious award was presented at the association’s national conference in Toronto to John Whatley, the CODE program director who received the award on behalf of SFU’s School of Criminology, Centre for Online and Distance Education (CODE) and, in particular, all the people responsible for the design, implementation and continuing delivery of the program.

Kristy Martin, who completed the program in 2011, says that the innovative delivery of the program was essential: “My favourite experience in this program was e-live, which provided a more interactive learning opportunity without the need for in class attendance. That allowed those of us who do not live in Vancouver an opportunity to have lectures from our professors and to interact with our fellow students.”

Successful completion of the program is required become a Notary Public in BC: BC Notaries Education brochure (PDF).
