Website: College of 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. 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 program ordinarily takes one to two years to complete. Receipt of the LL.M. degree does not qualify a student for admission to the Bar in Canada. Preference will be given to students who have studied in the Common Law tradition. An individual directed research project (3 credit units) may be undertaken in lieu of a course. With faculty approval, one of the required courses may be taken outside the College of Law in an associated discipline.
Application for admission should be submitted to the Associate Dean, Graduate Studies & Research, in the College of Law prior to December 15. Applications may be accepted in certain special circumstances if space is available. The requirement for admission is a LL.B degree or equivalent. Applications from College of Law Alumni will be accepted up to May 1.
Studies in the Native Law and Co-operative Law areas are normally undertaken in association with the University of Saskatchewan Native Law Centre and the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives.
The College of Law makes available a scholarship fund for outstanding applicants.
