The University of Toronto Updates its Global Professional LL.M. With New Concentration

New LL.M. concentration to focus on the law of leadership

Canada's University of Toronto Faculty of Law (UofT) has announced the addition of a Law of Leadership concentration to its Global Professional LL.M. program.

The new concentration will help participants understand the legal obligations of employers. “Employees are much more aware of what their rights and protections are, particularly in the wake of #MeToo," says Emma Phillips, who will be teaching on the program.

“It actually is very well-suited for people who aren’t necessarily doing everyday HR, but are a step removed. They need to have a broad understanding of what the rights and obligations are in the workplace,” she says.

The Law of Leadership concentration is designed for both legal and non-legal professionals. UofT's Global Professional LL.M. program is one year long with classes delivered in the evenings and on weekends. The other concentrations on offer include Business Law, Canadian Law in a Global Context, and Innovation, Law and Technology.

The new concentration will launch this fall. For more information, please see the UofT news release announcing the launch of the Law of Leadership LL.M. concentration.
