McGill LLM Applicants 2018-2019


Hi, I am currently pursuing LL.B and am in my final year. I have been told by an agency that Canada doesn't accept LLM applicants from India and that there is test that we have to take and then get enrolled in a J.D. program and after that go for LL.M.

From what I know all the countries take in students for LL.M. directly after LL.B.

If I am wrong please enlighten me.

I'm pretty sure the agency is wrong, but check with the schools you're applying to.

This is from the McGil website:

Candidates for admission to our graduate law programs must possess a Bachelor of Laws degree or an equivalent law degree from an accredited university with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0/4.0, or its equivalent (upper second class).

That's pretty clear that as long as you have a verifiable first law degree with the specified GPA, this should suffice. However, this is a competitive program so just having the minimum doesn't guarantee admission.
