This is a Research based Program.

LLM students take courses that enable them to develop a strong research foundation and deepen their knowledge in a given legal or socio-legal field. Courses include Research Methods, a Graduate Seminar and Legal Theory.

Students enrolled in the LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream complete courses in law teaching, lecturing, course design and pedagogical assessment.

  • An emphasis on rigorous scholarship centred on our institutional themes of Access to Justice and Transnational Law.
  • An innovative experiential learning component that allows students in the LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream to complete a certificate in university teaching, and to engage in law teaching during the course of their study.
  • Windsor Law has earned distinction among law schools for its emphases on access to justice, community service and transnational law — and our faculty reflect this focus.
  • Together, they form a vibrant intellectual and social community that provides our students with an appreciation of law as a vehicle for legal and social change.
  • Two Streams of Study
  • One-year(12-month) regular LLM
  • Two-year (24-month) LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning.
  • The central requirement for both streams is the completion of original publishable research. This major written piece of original research, or thesis, may be submitted as a single document or as a set of related publishable papers addressing a single research question and totalling approximately 100-125 pages.
