Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Law (LL.B, J.D., B.C.L.)
Description: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.
