Full-Time Professional LLMs
Our programs enable internationally-trained lawyers and experienced professionals to bridge theory and practice.
We have made certain provisions in light of Covid-19
Full-time LLMs are ordinarily run in-person.
Course delivery will depend upon the evolving public health situation as well as provincial restrictions. Our current expectation is that in the Winter 2022 term, most courses in the Canadian Common Law and International Business Law programs will be offered in person. However, we do recognize that there may be legitimate barriers due to COVID-related restrictions that may delay your arrival. As a result, there will be a limited subset of courses that are offered online (via live video conference).

The support of a competent faculty helped me customize and tailor my education according to my strengths and personal areas of interest. They were crucial in providing a smooth transition.
