Description The Masters of Law (L.L.M.) Common Law program is a year-long, course-based professional program that provides foundational training in the common law and in Canadian law for foreign trained or non-common law trained lawyers. The program begins in May with intensive courses in Canadian public and private law over the summer (May-July) that introduce core common law concepts and the foundations of Canadian law. Students complete their degree with courses from the broad array of upper-year JD and graduate-level offerings. The program, unique in Canada, offers students the opportunity to complete a masters' degree in Law while also working towards the course-work requirements for the practice of law in Canada.
