Applications for the 2016 LLM, MSL programs will open on October 1st. Applications for the Fall 2016/Winter 2017 SJD program will open November 1st. 

The graduate program has a limited number of places available each year. An early application is strongly recommended. 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.  This 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 the LLM, MSL, or SJD 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 LLM and SJD applicants are reminded that applications for OGS and SSHRC scholarships are generally due in October or November of the year preceding enrolment.  Please review the pages on the Faculty of Law and SGS websites regarding financing your graduate education.
