Law (LLM)

Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Law
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Advanced Legal Research/Studies, General (Graduate Level)
Description The LLM is a graduate law degree which provides students with an opportunity to study a particular area of law in much greater depth than is possible in the LLB program. Although the LLM does not qualify a student to practice law in Canada, there are a variety of reasons why students enter the Master of Laws program. Some of our students are Canadian or foreign practicing lawyers who wish to specialize in a particular area of law, while others are preparing for careers as academic lawyers at universities throughout the world. For the LLM program, students may select either the thesis-based LLM or the course-based LLM program. Students are admitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR), and degrees are awarded by FGSR; however, students are taught by members of the Faculty of Law and generally do their study and research in the Faculty of Law.
