In Canada, the JD is a second-entry (i.e., not direct entry from high school) undergraduate program that is an equivalent to both a common-law LLB and an American JD.

JD Program Assistance
Our staff is extremely knowledgeable about the JD admissions process and can assist applicants on all matters regarding their JD applications.

Graduate Law Programs Assistance (LLM, GPLLM, SJD etc.)
The JD Admissions staff does not handle any aspect of the Faculty's graduate level programs, and the JD staff is located in a separate building from the graduate program staff. Therefore, for assistance please view the list of graduate law program contacts.
