Practising Law

Applicants should be aware that a graduate degree in law does not qualify one for admission to the Bar in Ontario.

Neither the LLM nor the SJD program is an effective vehicle for satisfying the requirements of the National Committee on Accreditation. The NCA generally requires applicants to take a number of basic first-year courses, which graduate students are disallowed from taking except in exceptional circumstances. Satisfying the requirements of the NCA is not considered to be an exceptional circumstance.  

If you are interested in becoming qualified to practise law in Ontario, please see NCA Options at the Faculty of Law.
