During the renovation, our 1 Dundas West location will be fully shut down and we will be unable to hold courses at this location. Instead, we will be offering some courses at Osgoode Hall Law School (Ignat Kaneff Building – 4700 Keele Street) and will offer some courses only by video conference.

We wanted to give you advanced notice about our plans so you can consider this when making your Winter 2018 course selections.

With the exception of Advanced Corporate Finance (which will be offered again in Summer 2019) all of the courses offered in Summer 2018 are electives.

Summer 2018 Course Offerings

Intensive in-person or video conference attendance options

Video Conference ONLY courses

In-Person Attendance Required

You also have the option to complete a Major Research Paper during the Summer term.

Renovation FAQs for Professional LLM Students

    Q: Can I attend a Video Conference only course, even though I am not a video conference student?
    Yes – we will lend you video conference equipment and set you up for the summer.
    Given that video conference set up takes time (we set up an initial call with a technician to assess your current system, then send you equipment), students who need to be set up with video conference will need to submit the summer enrollment request by the deadline – details about enrollment deadlines for summer will be available in the new year.

    In order to be set up for video conference you will need:

    • > A single set up location (home or office) – the equipment cannot be moved between multiple locations
    • > Adequate internet and computer (our technicians will be able to assess and advise on this).
    • NB: There will be no charge for this service and equipment provided that you return the equipment (using the pre-paid mailing slip) by August 31, 2018.

    Q: I don’t live in Toronto. Can you recommend accommodations near Keele Campus?
    Yes – there is a hotel on campus at the Schulich School of Business. You can find more information here

    Q: What if I don’t want to take a course this summer?
    You can request a No Course Available leave of absence from the Summer 2018 term. The deadline to submit a leave of absence for Summer 2018 is March 15, 2018. Leave of absence requests can be made via the Academic Request Form.

    There is no cost or academic penalty associated with taking a No Course Available leave – however doing so may extend your time in the program by one term.

    Q: I need assistance making a course plan
    Please make an appointment for academic counselling via MyCareer with Christine Briggs or Michael Tam.

    Q: I have a question that isn’t answered here.
    Please feel free to contact Christine Briggs directly with any questions.
