Osgoode LLM

Osgoode LLM

I have served as Director of Osgoode Hall Law School’s specialist Masters of Law (LLM) program in Labour and Employment Law since 2010.

Read about the program here.

This is the top specialist masters of law program in labour and employment law in Canada if not North America.  The program offers a great opportunity for foreign graduate law students interesting in an LLM from one of the world’s top law schools, and the price is a bargain compared to other comparable international degrees.   The courses can be taken by distance education, meaning you do not have to come to Toronto.  We have had students from around the world, including Chile, Switzerland, India, and other countries, and of course students from every province in Canada. Our graduates include leading practitioners in the field, academics, and at least one Minister of Labour.  The faculty include Canada’s leading professors of labour and employment law as well as senior international faculty.

This program is not a continuing education program for practicing lawyers.  It is taught as a challenging academic LLM program, but one that works around the busy schedules of practicing lawyers.  Most courses are scheduled for three hours on a Thursday night (7-10 p.m.), and then from 9-5 on the following Friday and Saturday.  All classes are held at Osgoode’s downtown location, at Yonge and Dundas above the Eaton Centre with an online option for students unable to come to Toronto.

The program accepts a new cohort every two years.  Contact the program for more information.
