Description The Doctor of Civil Law Program allows for the development of a substantive and original contribution to legal research and knowledge under the supervision of a faculty member. Doctoral candidates normally plan to pursue an academic career, and develop their approach to pedagogy, research and writing while at McGill. D.C.L. candidates all begin with immersion in our Theoretical Approaches to Law course in order to ground the critical framework necessary for a major research and writing project. Candidates are encouraged to supplement this course with Graduate Legal Methodology and other courses relevant to their scholarly ambitions (eg. Legal Traditions, Legal Education, Air and Space Law courses, etc.). Every candidate must successfully pass a comprehensive examination, usually after one year in the program. The doctoral program pursued within the Institute of Air and Space Law of the Faculty of Law has at its core a substantial thesis that makes an original contribution to legal scholarship;
