LLM in Canada


Hello,

I have a few questions with regards to an LLM degree from Canada

Firstly, where shall I get my LLM degree from within Canada i.e. a) Oosgoode School of Law b) McGill or c) University of Toronto? It would also be essential to note here that I would intend to specialize in Intellectual Property Law.
Secondly, I am looking forward to settling down in Canada, thus what types of examinations would I be required to give?
Thirdly, would an LLM specialized in Intellectual Property law be a good course to study with the ultimate objective of settling down in Canada?
Fourthly, should I apply for the status of a PR prior to my LLM application?
Fifth, I have completed my 5 year law course from India, is it of any relevance or would I have to start from scratch in Canada?
Lastly, I have about one and a half years of work experience in India.

Thank- you, all answers/ guidance would be appreciated.

For IP Law - do McGill or UofT even offer this as a specialization? Osgoode Hall's IP law program is good.

What do you mean by settling down in Canada? What kind of job would you plan to do? If you are planning on practicing law, it's not so straightforward, and an LLM would probably not help you (much) along this path.

There is some good (but old) discussion on this here:

If you want to become a law professional that doesn't practice (paralegal etc.) this is doable but it's an LLM is a lot of money to spend if that's your goal.
