Time to grow? Time for a change? Osgoode’s Professional Master of Laws Program offers the right combination of theory, practice and flexibility to take you to the next step in your career.
The only program of its kind in Canada, Osgoode’s Professional LLM was first established in the 1970s. It now includes more than 17 different specializations, among them Banking, Intellectual Property, Labour Relations, Securities, Alternative Dispute Resolution and Criminal Law. For those who would prefer not to specialize, the General LLM program allows you to customize a program of study by selecting courses from LLM specializations in progress, subject to prerequisite requirements.
Unlike some other LLM programs, the courses in the Professional LLM are developed specifically for graduate students.
Each two-year program is taught by some of the top legal educators in the country, including professors from Osgoode and other leading law schools, top practitioners, judges and policy makers. Your classmates include working professionals representing private practice, government and business in Toronto, across Canada and as far away as Australia. Osgoode’s Professional LLM is available at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre in Downtown Toronto or through distance learning..
Whatever program or method of study you choose, an Osgoode Professional Development LLM will open doors to new challenges, new responsibilities . . . perhaps even a new career.
Learning doesn't have to end with an LLB.
