This exciting new programme provides students with a world-class legal education which prepares them for the global and international environment in which they will provide legal advice.

The JD is a first professional doctorate degree required for licensure in the field of law. The programme delivers a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) to graduates from a discipline other than law and provides the necessary professional exemptions to allow holders to apply for the professional stage in England and Wales, North America and elsewhere.

The JD is taught via intensive, small-group teaching, with each student expected to participate fully in each module. Other forms of delivery will occasionally be utilised, including seminar questions prepared in advance of the class, group and independent work in class, and short lectures to aid students’ understanding and knowledge of the subject matter. Students will be taught as a single group and there is a supportive learning environment.

Students take ten compulsory taught modules, and in the final year write a dissertation module and taught modules from the wide selection of existing postgraduate modules on offer in the School.

Students also have the opportunity in Year 3, or to spend a semester of Year 3 studying at another University from a selection of international study abroad partners.

Scholarship opportunities are available from the Law School; for details please contact the School () or visit our website. Tuition for the programme is $19,000 pa (£12,000 pa – subject to current exchange rate).

Course Structure

The course is designed to equip you with basic legal knowledge and skills that are required for admission to legal practice, with the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge in areas of law of your choice. The basic knowledge is imparted through three broad themes: legal methodology and legal practice, public law and private law. The specialised knowledge and advanced skills are imparted in later year elective units.

Part A. Legal methodology and legal practice
This theme includes the nature of law, and particularly statute law enacted by Parliaments and common law developed by courts. It also includes the key concepts, principles and methods of research and reasoning that enable lawyers to identify and interpret law and apply it to relevant facts in order to provide legal advice. It covers the law of procedure and evidence that governs judicial proceedings, alternative methods of resolving legal disputes, and the code of ethics that regulates the professional conduct of legal practitioners.

Part B. Public law
Public law includes constitutional law, administrative law and criminal law. It concerns the powers and procedures of the legislative, executive and judicial organs of government, and how they are regulated and controlled by "the rule of law". It also concerns the legal relationship between government and individuals, including the protection of the individual rights.

Part C. Private law
Private law deals with legal relationships between legal persons, including corporations as well as individuals. It includes the study of property rights, contractual rights and obligations, wrongs (called "torts") such as trespass and the negligent infliction of injury, and the law of equity and trusts.

Part D. Extending specialised knowledge and advanced skills
In these studies you will complete at least one commercial law unit and a professional project and will also add to your expertise by choosing from a broad range of elective law units. Elective law units enable you to develop specialised knowledge and advanced skills in areas of law that suit your own interests, skills and career goals.

To Windsor Law’s inaugural LLM class - a warm welcome! We are excited to have you here. Our LLM class is made up of students who come from Canada and from all around the world. They have great diversity and richness of experience that includes students who have practised law, who have advanced degrees in other disciplines in addition to law, and who all have far-reaching subject matter interests and aspirations for their LLM degrees that show commitment to the ideals of access to justice and/or transnational law.

Dr. Laverne Jacobs, Director of Graduate Studies, Windsor Law

The Windsor Law LLM Program

Our LLM program has two distinctly unique characteristics.
-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.

Students may choose from two streams: a one-year (12 month) regular LLM or a 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 one single document or as a set of related publishable papers addressing a single research question and totalling approximately 100-125 pages.

Students enrolled in our innovative LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning program have a unique experiential learning experience. In year 1, students will complete the University of Windsor’s University Teaching Certificate. In year 2, they will be designated as Teaching Fellows and have the opportunity to complete a teaching practicum at the Faculty of Law. Formalized university teacher training and law teaching experiences are unprecedented experiential learning opportunities among Canadian LLM programs. No other Canadian Masters Program in Law offers this.

Windsor Law’s LLM. offers students the opportunity to be integrated into a scholarly community. Given the small size of the program, students will engage closely with faculty members who are leading experts in their fields.

Academics

Windsor Law is a learner-centred community that values intellectual curiosity, interdisciplinary research and global scholarship. Successful LLM applicants will be able to draw on our Faculty’s strengths in its two main themes of Access to Justice and Transnational Law.

The Law Faculty’s two main themes provide large and flexible envelopes within which graduate studies may be undertaken. The admissions committee will make its best efforts to find a supervisor who shares the research interests of every suitable applicant whose proposed research falls largely within these themes. Suitable applicants will not be turned away simply because their research interests do not fit squarely within the confines of either stream. Most importantly, students will only be admitted if they can be assured a supervisor.

We pride ourselves in a small and well-nurtured graduate student community. We currently accept 3-4 students per year. Successful applicants will normally have received high academic standing (B+) in law school studies.

Curriculum

Windsor Law’s LL.M students take courses that help them to develop a strong research foundation and deepen their knowledge in a given legal or socio-legal field. Required courses include research methods, legal theory and the graduate seminar. Students in the LL.M with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream also enrol in courses focusing on topics such as law teaching with cultural competence, lecturing, course design and pedagogical assessment.

Our LL.M courses and seminars are designed specifically for graduate students in Law. Exceptionally, students may enrol in up to two additional courses, as either electives or to supplement their research. These courses may be taken from the JD program or from a cognate discipline for students interested in interdisciplinary research. Students will work with their supervisor and the Director of Graduate Studies to ensure an evaluation in non-LL.M courses that is suitable for a student in the LL.M program.
