Canada's Western Law Launches New LL.M. for Professionals

New LL.M. includes a major research project component

Canada's Western University—previously known as the University of Western Ontario (UWO)—has announced the launch of a new LL.M. program for professionals.

The new LL.M. is aimed at law practitioners and recent law graduates who want to enhance their professional credentials.

The program can be completed either on a full- or part-time basis. Full-time students can finish the LL.M. in one year, while it will take two years for part-timers.

The LL.M. will include one graduate seminar, five elective courses, and a major research project. The project component can be tailored to students' individual interests.

The program is available to those with a JD/ LLB or equivalent.

Western Law also offers a thesis-based LL.M. option, which includes a thesis rather than a project component.
