Hi, Abhishek:

If you want to enter a Canadian LLM program in IP and IT Law, I would strongly recommend you to take a look at the University of Ottawa's Law & Technology Program, for a couple of reasons:

Among its renowned Faculty, you will find foremost professors like Daniel Gervais (LLM, Montreal, and Doctorate, Nantes), who has a remakable projection in the field, extensive work for organizations like WTO (he took part in the negotiation of the Trips!), WIPO and OECD, and who is also a visiting lecturer in universities such as Stanford, Nantes, and Amsterdam; Michael Geist (LLM, Cambridge, LLM, Columbia, and JSD, Cambridge), who is the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-Commerce Law, and Ian Kerr, who is the Canada Research Chair in Ethics, Law and Technology. Note: there are no other Canada Research Chairs in any field related to Law and Technology.

Out of the Faculty of Law, but in a phiilosophical discipline closely linked to our field of knowledge, Pierre Lévy is the Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Collective Intelligence, and directs the Colletive Intelligence Lab.

uOttawa is the house of the Creative Commons Project in Canada (same as Oxford in the UK, Paris II in France, Harvard and Stanford in the US, Edimburgh in Scotland, Torino in Italy, and Amsterdam in the Netherlands).

uOttawa is the house of the On The Identity Trail Project, runed by Ian Kerr, with a funding of C$ 4 Million, and several outstanding research fellows enrolled in it (this, however, is more related to IT, and less to IPR, as you want).

uOttawa has an unparalleled internship program in its Law & Tech Program, that enables you to have some very interesting practical experience whithin the best law firms in Canada.

uOttawa is great in dispute resolution and moot court competition, and is the only Canadian institution that takes part in the renowned World Trade Organization's moot court competition, together with a couple of american Ivy League universities (and surely Intellectual Property Rights is an issue of recurrent discussion in those foruns).

In sum, the University of Ottawa's Law and Technology Program is the leading Canadian program in the area, and competes with the best programs in the US and the EU, whith the advantage of the lower costs of living in Canada, plus the reasonable price of the tuition fees.

You're right, but maybe other people have other opinions... I don't know much about the Canadian universities, so I wonder if there are other universities good for IT, and if students who are there are happy or not with their choice.

But never mind, it's ok, I'll try to find other places to get information.

About admissions I may say that it is fairly competitive. The regular number of Graduate students enrolled per year in the program is around 15 students. This year we have only 10 in class. But I advise you to also take a look in other programs. Of course the University of Ottawa is not the only option. Specially if you want to focus Intellectual Property Law. For instance, McGill has its Centre for Intellectual Property Law and Policy, and Toronto has its Centre for Innovation Law and Policy. Both have an outstanding Faculty and very interesting projects.

I can be wrong, but for corporate / commercial law I would go to either Toronto or Osgoode Hall, at York University. Both are very reputable and are... in Toronto. But if you want to focus on specific subjects of commercial law, for instance in the areas e-commerce and IP, I advise you to search for the strength in those areas... and then to also take a look in Ottawa and McGill.

UWO (The University of Western Ontario) just started an LLM program last year. The LLB program at UWO has a specialization in IT / IP law so it might be worth looking at throwing in an application... Professor Wilkinson heads up the IP department and she is an excellent prof. Professor Kerr of the University of Ottawa, used to be at UWO...

Just a thought! Not trying to do PR for UWO!

Hi, I am xingbin. I have been admitted into UT and Osgoode Hall for LL.M. program. I really don't know which one is better.
My specialization is international financial regulation. UT gave me course-intensive program. Osgoode Hall is thesis-intensive program.....And Osgoode Hall has gaven me the funding and professor. I am waiting for UT's financial decision....Does some one know if it is difficult to get funding in UT or not? I have to make the decison before March 24, which is the Osgoode Hall deadline. Maybe I cannot wait for UT' financial decision. Therefore, I really wanna know sth about UT....and the probability to get funding.....

Dear Friends,

I am a landed immigrant with rich background in public international law. I would like to know your views on the prospects of working in this field in Canada. Until now, I have realized that there is not much to do in this sphere in Canada since there are not many international organizations located in this country.
Many people suggested me to study again, but this time at a Canadian law school in order to have some opportunities in the field of law.
Frankly saying, I have been told that I do not even qualify for a position of a legal assistant with my foreign degrees in law. I have studied in Europe for my LLM and obtained experience in several international organizations.
At many places I applied so far people say "wow" looking at my CV, but unfornuately they do not go beyond that "wow"

I would be very happy if you could also elaborate on the National Accreditation Committee's procedure to qualify foreign lawyers to practice in Canada.

Thank you very much beforehand.

Rakhmad

Wow indeed! thanks for the notice to those of us going abroad to study in Europe. However, as a person from the Pacific and also a commonwealth country like Canada (not at all as advance as them!) I am very much interested to hear of this information National Accreditation Committee's procedure.
