Course content

Since 1988, students studying natural resources, energy and environmental law have come to the University of Calgary from around the world to pursue their thesis-based LLM degree.

In September 2007 we added a course-based LLM stream to our graduate programs to better meet the needs of lawyers engaged in private, corporate and government practice in the natural resources, energy and environmental law sectors of the economy. The course-based LLM will also appeal to international students trained in civil law legal systems seeking an introduction to the common law and an opportunity to take courses and seminars on a variety of natural resources, energy and environmental law topics.

Thesis-based LLM
Our thesis-based LLM emphasizes the research and writing of a thesis. It is a full-time program that requires students to complete four half courses, two of them compulsory. This program is intended for law students who have demonstrated strong potential for advanced research and writing in a common law system on a specific legal issue and who are interested in an academic or research career. Students are only admitted in the Fall term (September). Applicants must have a law degree prior to applying to the program.

Course-based LLM
The course-based LLM is aimed at lawyers who wish to explore one or more topics within our areas of specialization at advanced levels, and at international students who wish to develop an understanding of Canadian legal processes and laws affecting the natural resources sectors. Students in our course-based LLM complete six half courses and a major research paper. The course-based LLM may be taken on a full- or part-time basis. Students are only admitted in the Fall term (September). Applicants must have a law degree prior to applying to the program.
