Graduate Programs in Law

Hear what our graduate students say about their experience with us

Be a part of our vibrant and close-knit intellectual community

The Schulich School of Law has an active graduate degree program, offering the Master of Law (LLM) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. 

Our graduate students make extraordinary contributions to legal knowledge, with rigorous research that changes the way we think about law and policy across a wide range of domains.

Home to a vibrant and intimate intellectual community of 20 to 30 students from around the world, our graduate program combines personally-tailored study plans with close supervision by some of Canada's finest legal minds. Our goals are to develop students into future professors and jurists and to enable private and public sector practitioners to achieve deep specialization to provide the opportunity for some students to become professors & jurists.
