Program

This program offers the greatest flexibility in terms of elective course choices and research topic.   In general, eligible candidates can be admitted to the general LL.M. with a research proposal in any area of law, provided there is an appropriate supervisor available.  Applicants interested in those fields in which we offer a specific concentration can choose to apply to either the general LLM or to the specific concentration, depending on what course of study they wish to pursue.


The Faculty of Law also offers an option within the general LLM specifically designed for law clerks who wish to complete an LL.M. with Research Paper at the same time as or within five (5) years of completing a clerkship. More information about this option is provided here.


Applicants to the general LLM must choose one of two formats to complete the degree: LL.M. with Major Research Paper and LL.M. with Thesis.
