Overview

The core courses are specifically designed to meet the requirements of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada's National Committee on Accreditation (NCA). Students in the Canadian Common Law specialization benefit from both academic and career support to assist in their transition to the Canadian legal marketplace. Note: Completing the Professional LLM in Canadian Common Law does not automatically entitle you to practice law in Canada or to be admitted to the Bar of a Canadian province or territory. Consult the NCA or your provincial/territorial law society for more information.

Who is this Specialization for?

Graduates of law degree programs from outside Canada, or graduates with a civil law degree from a Canadian university who wish to become licensed to practice in a Canadian common law jurisdiction, or want a solid grounding in Canadian common law for comparative law purposes.

Specialization Structure

The Professional LLM in Canadian Common Law from  York University  is designed to give full-time and part-time students the flexibility to select courses to fulfill their NCA requirements and fit their schedules. Courses in the Canadian Common Law specialization require in-person attendance and are scheduled in a variety of formats (daytime, evening, weekend and intensive) across both Osgoode Hall and OsgoodePD campuses. Full-time students complete the specialization in one year (12 credits per term over three terms) and part-time students can complete the specialization over two years (6 credits per term over six terms). New full-time and part-time students are admitted in the Fall and Winter terms.
