A maximum of ten new students may be admitted to the thesis-based LLM stream each September. Between 10 and 20 new students may be admitted to the course-based LLM stream each September. There is no limit to the number of Post-baccalaureate certificate students admitted each year (September or January).
Applicants to either LLM program or the Post-baccalaureate certificate program must meet both the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Faculty of Law admission requirements.
Faculty of Graduate Studies admission requirements
a) All applicants must hold a bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognized institution with a minimum GPA of 3.00 (out of 4.00) in the final two years. Attainment of this standard will ensure consideration of the candidate, but in no way guarantees admission which is competitive in nature and limited to the number of available places.
b) When English is not the native language, a minimum TOEFL Internet (ibT) score of 100, of which the combined reading, listening and writing component must be 75. The minimum of score for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is 7.0 with a reading and writing band minimum of 7.0. The successful completion of Tier 3 of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program will fulfill the English language requirement.
Faculty of Law admission requirements
In addition to the Faculty of Graduate Studies admission requirements, the Faculty of Law requires a first academic degree in law (GPA of 3.00 as above, or an upper second from universities following that grading scheme).
Online application forms for all of our programs are available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies' Admissions site.
