Program Description

  • Master of Law at York University is offered as a 2-year teaching program.
  • This program is offered at the Osgoode Hall Law School.
  • This research LLM is a full-time research-intensive degree, ideal for students who want to delve deeply into specific areas of study and for those who are considering advancing to the Ph.D.
  • Students entering without an LLB or JD may be required by the Graduate Program Director to take additional courses on the advice of their supervisors.
  • This is often advantageous, especially where students lack sufficient background in fields of law related to their research.
  • In this two-year program, students will study courses like:
    • Administrative Law
    • Financial Law
    • Business Law
    • Canadian Common Law
    • Constitutional Law
    • Criminal Law and Procedure
    • Energy and Infrastructure Law
  • The research LLM does not qualify students to practice law in Canada. Students interested in practising law in Canada should review the licensing rules of the Law Society of the province in which they intend to practice.
  • A student may opt to do a Portfolio Thesis. This involves using one or two published articles (depending on length and scope) from the students' work during their time in the Osgoode graduate degree as the submission in lieu of a traditional thesis.
  • Both the Thesis and Major Research Paper options should be completed in 3 or 4 terms. Generally, students take courses in the Fall and Winter terms, conduct their research in the Winter term and write the Thesis or MRP in the Summer term.
  • Students may have job opportunities like:
    • Court Clerk
    • Court Reporter
    • Judge
    • Legal Executive
    • Legal Secretary, etc., with an average salary of around 40,000 USD per year.
