LLM without LLB in Canada


Hello everyone,

I am a Criminology undergrad, and after working in an an international human rights NGO for more than a year, am interested in doing LLM (which would give me the much needed legal knowledge). I am interested in pursuing the LLM degree in Canada. I know there are lots of options in UK but havent come across any univ. in Canada which accepts students for LLM who have not done LLB. I would really appreciate if any of you know about any such univ. in Canada.

Thanks in advance.

Greetings:

An interesting, question, yours, which reveals the lack of flexibility in Canadian LL.M programmes. You're really left with the University of Toronto's Osgoode Hall part-time, executive type LL.M. programme, which will not have the extent of criminal content you seem to want. All other Canadian law schools won't consider - even for a two year (+) part-time LL.M. - candidates without a LL.B. degree. I recommend you stay offshore in your choice of programmes, and that you consider Melbourne, Otago, Wales (Aberstwyth), Utrecht and, of course, LSE. Ideally, you'd want to study law in a common law jurisdiction with a comparable criminal justice system to that of Canada: Australia, New Zealand, and the U.K. Best of luck.
