Field of Study:Law (LL.B, J.D., B.C.L.)
Social Work
Description:The JD/MSW program combines the law school’s inter-disciplinary teaching environment with its commitment to public interest law. Offered by the Faculty of Law and the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, the program gives students who wish to practise in the areas in which law and social work interact (for example, child welfare, mental health, social policy, human rights) an opportunity to participate in a coherent program leading to both the JD and MSW degrees.

This combined program allows students to complete the two degrees in four years, rather than the five it would take to pursue them independently. Students who enter with a BSW will be given advanced standing and are exempted from completing the first year of the master's program (MSW) in social work and, therefore, complete years one, three and four of the combined program only, completing the JD/MSW program in three years.
