UBC Law, one of Canada's leading law schools, is proud of its tradition in graduate student training and is home to one of the country's oldest and most well-established graduate programs.
The Masters of Law (LLM) Common Law Program is a year-long, course-based professional program that provides foundational training in the common law and in Canadian law for foreign trained or non-common law trained lawyers. The program begins in May with intensive courses in Canadian public and private law over the summer (May-July) that introduce core common law concepts and the foundations of Canadian law. Students complete their degree with courses from the broad array of upper-year JD and graduate-level offerings.
The program, the first of its kind in Canada, offers students the opportunity to complete a masters' degree in Law while also working towards the course-work requirements for the practice of law in Canada. If you have a foreign legal training and are interested in practicing law in Canada, then you must consult with and apply to the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA), the body charged with determining the additional qualifications required for foreign-trained lawyers to practice in Canada. The courses in the Masters of Law (LLM) Common Law Program degree are designed to meet NCA requirements.
Courses include among others: Canadian Public Law, Canadian Private Law, Canadian Criminal Law and Procedure, Seminar in Topics in Common Law Theory and Practice.
