Description:The School of Social Work and the Faculty of Law offer a Master of Social Work (MSW) with integrated Bachelor of Civil Law/Bachelor of Laws (BCL/LLB) designed to transcend academic boundaries in social justice issues. Lawyers and social workers often operate in the same fields, whether in public policy, child protection, family law, poverty law, or domestic violence situations, yet each profession has been constrained by internal limitations.

The joint MSW (non-thesis option)/Law program requires students to complete 132 credits (45 credits in MSW, 87 credits in Law). Students should take three and a half to four years to complete the MSW/B.C.L./LL.B. program. It is possible, however, to complete the program in three years, by doing work for credit over the summer and by carrying heavier course loads throughout the program. The joint program leads to conferral of the B.C.L./LL.B. law degrees and the master’s degree in social work.
