The Professional LLM in Administrative Law is a two-year, part-time program designed for professionals from across Canada who want to develop greater expertise in this dynamic area of law. This unique program gives students the opportunity to examine and analyze contemporary legal issues relating to the delivery of public programs of regulation and social benefit. Students will examine at an advanced level: theoretical perspectives on public administration; the law and application of judicial review principles; updates to provincial and federal administrative programs, institutions and processes; and the liability of the Crown and other public bodies.
The degree requirements will be satisfied upon the completion of 36 credits.
The 36 credits can be obtained by either coursework or a blend of coursework
and a Major Research Paper (70 pages). Students who elect to do the degree by coursework only must write a Significant Research Paper (30 pages) as the means of evaluation in one of the courses within the specialization.
The Advanced Legal Research Workshop is required for all students who wish to complete a Major Research Paper. Please note that this will not count towards the 36 credits required to complete the degree.
Courses will be offered in a combination of weekly and intensive formats. Videoconferencing is available for most
courses, although occasional attendance in person in Toronto is required (refer to the schedule for specific details on each course).
Note: Faculty, curriculum, course descriptions and degree requirements are subject to change without notice.
