The U of S offers an excellent LLM program. It includes a thought provoking advanced jurisprudence course. Masters students enjoy a collegial relationship with faculty members that provides for collaboration and support. The LLM candidates are a strong group that engage in intellectual stimulation, the exchange of new ideas and perspectives, research assistance and professional development. I have studied at numerous universities in Canada and Australia. I highly recommend the LLM program at the U of S.
Maria Lynn Freeland, LL M Candidate, EM Culliton Scholar
Freeland is a Masters of Law student at the U of S. She is researching and writing her thesis in the area of criminal Law.
The College offers programs of study leading to a Master of Laws degree in areas of public and private law. Admission to undertake studies in a particular area of the program will depend upon the availability of faculty supervision in the areas of Aboriginal Law, Criminal Law, Commercial Law, Constitutional Law and Human Rights, Environmental Law, Agricultural Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Every effort is made to structure the programs to meet the needs of the individual student. Candidates are required to complete a minimum of 9 credit units, 3 of which must be in Legal Theory. All students must undertake original research leading to a thesis of publishable quality.
The thesis is written under the supervision of a designated faculty member and, upon completion, is read by an appointed Advisory Committee. An oral examination before this Committee and an external examination are also required.
Applications must be received by December 15 in order for your application to be considered by the Graduate Committee for admission the following September.
