Ranking of LLM Programs in Canada?


Traitor8

Hey,

Does anybody have any info about where I can find rankings of LLM programs in Canada?

I found a general law school ranking from 2013 that suggests that these are the top 10 law schools:

Toronto
Osgoode
McGill
Queen's
UBC
Dalhousie
Victoria
Alberta
Western
Ottawa

... but not sure how reliable this is as a ranking for LLM programs. I was considering UBC, McGill, and Toronto; but now I'm also thinking about Osgoode...

All good programs. I think that it's more appropriate to think of these programs in tiers, rather than one being better than the others. So the top tier would be UofT, Osgood, Mcgill. The rest on this list is perhaps in tier two, but still good. Also, your LLM choice would probably depend on what you want to study. McGill's programs are a bit unique compared to the other two; it features LLMs in Bioethics and Environmental Studies, for instance...

Alright, cheers mate. I would like to study Business Law or Finance Law. I suppose that Toronto would be better for these fields? (than vs. Montreal...) If that's the case, it sounds like Osgoode and UofT are pretty much on par with each other, correct?

I don't think that one stands out head and shoulders above the other, if that's what you're asking. Osgoode's International Business Law program covers these aspects, as does UofT's Business Law LLM, to some degree. I'd research each of these programs closely and see which is most appealing to you.

I'm not seeing Manitoba on this ranking... Does that mean that it's not as good of a school? I'm thinking about doing my LLM there...

chicken so...

The LLM at Manitoba is thesis-based, no?

I'd say that it's a top-20 law school in general, but not the primary choice for international attorneys looking for an LLM.
