The two year, part-time Professional LLM in Labour Relations and Employment Law gives students the opportunity to gain an enriched and deeper understanding of the theory, policies and principles that underlie labour and employment law and to consider, at an advanced level, the social, economic and political forces shaping this dynamic field today.
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.
Courses will be offered in an intensive format (typically three to five consecutive days). Videoconferencing is available for most courses, although occasional in-person attendance in Toronto is required (refer to the schedule for specific details on each course).

“The program was a true highlight for me academically. The quality of the faculty was outstanding and the opportunity to meet others in my field from across Canada and learn equally from them was a unique one. I continue to use much of the information gathered during the program in my daily work and am ever thankful for the long-lasting friendships that I also gained.”
