Description The only program of its kind in Canada, Osgoode’s Part-time LLM was first established in the 1970s. It now includes more than 15 different specializations, among them Banking, Intellectual Property, Labour Relations, Securities, Alternative Dispute Resolution and Criminal Law. For those who would prefer not to specialize, the General LLM program allows you to select courses from the other specializations in progress, subject to prerequisite requirements. Unlike some other LLM programs, the courses in Part-time LLM are developed specifically for post-LLB students. Each two-year program is taught by some of the top legal educators in the country. They include professors from Osgoode and other leading law schools, along with top practitioners, judges and policy makers. Your classmates include working professionals representing private practice, government and business in Toronto, across Canada and as far away as Australia. Osgoode’s Part-time LLM is available at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre in Downtown Toronto or through distance learning.
