Graduate student ambassadors

The Student Graduate Ambassador Program connects admitted and prospective candidates to the LL.M. and D.C.L. programs with current McGill Law graduate students.

Our student ambassadors are keen to share their own perspectives with future McGill Law graduate students. They can answer your questions, show you around the Faculty, and are uniquely placed to tell you about the advantages of doing your graduate studies at McGill.

In their own words
