UBC Law revamps LL.M. (common law) degree for foreign-trained lawyers

UBC Faculty of Law recently revamped its LL.M. Common Law degree to create an opportunity for foreign-trained lawyers to practice law in Canada. This year-long, course-based professional LL.M. program provides foundational training in Canadian law and the common law for foreign-trained lawyers or lawyers without common law training. The revised degree includes new courses designed to assist foreign-trained lawyers in meeting the course-work requirements for practice in Canada.

The program begins in May with intensive courses that introduce core common law concepts and the foundations of Canadian law.  For more information, visit http://www.law.ubc.ca/graduate/p-programs-LLM-CL.html or contact Joanne Chung at 604.822.6449 or graduates@law.ubc.ca
