Please note that the Global Professional Master of Laws (GPLLM) program has a separate application process; visit the GPLLM Admissions and Application Process page for information about applying to that program.

The graduate programs have a limited number of places available each year and early applications are strongly recommended. Master of Laws (LLM) admission decisions are made on a rolling basis.  The later your application, the less likely you will be admitted or be awarded financial support.  Once the graduate programs are full, the Faculty will cease accepting applications, which may happen without further notice. Absolutely no documents will be accepted past the deadline, and exceptions to the deadline will not be made.

No decision will be made on an incomplete application.  An application for these programs will not be considered complete until you have submitted the Law School Graduate Application form, the School of Graduate Studies online application, all of your supporting documents, AND the application fee. The online admissions system will only show your documents as being "received" once your documents have been manually processed, NOT when they arrive in the mail room. Due to the large voume of mail received, there is often a delay between the mail being received, and the documents being processed. The delay will not affect your application, and documents will be processed in the order they are received. Thank you for your patience.

The University cannot process an application, nor will the Faculty of Law consider documents submitted, until the application fee (Cdn. $120) has been paid.  Application fee waivers or deferrals are not available.

Domestic Master of Laws (LLM) and Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) applicants are reminded that applications for Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS) and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarships are generally due in October or November of the year preceding enrolment.  Please review the pages on the Faculty of Law and School of Graduate Studies websites regarding financing your graduate education.
