Statistics Canada has just released the “Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP), Canada, 2000”. This is the Canadian effort to match the U.S. CIP, which was first developed in 1980. These classifications may have a variety of uses beyond that for the collection of statistics.
Law as a “field of study” is listed under “Academic and Occupationally-Specific Programs” and is identified, as are all fields of study, by a double digit, in this case 22. That field is further broken up into:
- Non-Professional General Legal Studies (Undergraduate)
- Law (First Professional Degree)
- Legal Research and Advanced Professional Studies (Graduate Level)
