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.
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.
