Law

Can be taken as: Professional Program

Proudly bilingual; rigorously bijural: McGill Law sits at the epicentre of two major legal traditions of the western world — civil law and common law.

From its earliest days, McGill has been a bridge between these two traditions. The McGill program is a global model for legal education that adapts to the changing shape of our world without borders. The faculty’s renewed curriculum features multiple opportunities for problem-based learning, translation of knowledge into action, and the development of skills that are critical to engaged, effective and enlightened jurists. 

By allowing you to graduate with both civil and common law degrees, you’ll have the flexibility of practicing law in any province in Canada or choosing an international career.

Important Note: To be eligible to apply to the Faculty of Law, candidates must have a minimum of two years (60 credits) of university studies, or a diploma of collegial studies (DCS) from a Quebec College of General and Professional Education (CEGEP), at the time of registration. Students with a French Baccalaureate from Quebec (Collèges international Marie de France or Stanislas) are also eligible to apply.
