McGill's Faculty of Law offers two joint programs in collaboration with the Desautels Faculty of Management and the School of Social Work: the MBA with integrated BCL/LLB and the MSW with integrated BCL/LLB.
Candidates interested in pursuing either joint degree program must apply separately to, and be admitted by, both faculties. A negative response from one of the two programs does not mean an automatic refusal from the other faculty. Admission to the Faculty of Law is based on the same criteria used for applicants applying only to the Law program.
Prerequisites for joint degree programs
Candidates are required to have previously completed an undergraduate degree in order to be eligible for admission to joint degree programs. Furthermore, candidates who wish to apply for the MBA/Law program also need a minimum of one year's employment experience following graduation in order to be admissible. Candidates wishing to apply for the MSW/Law program need to have completed a Bachelor of Social Work or a Qualifying Year. Candidates interested in pursuing these programs must submit separate applications to the Faculty of Law and to the graduate program of their choice:
- The Desautels Faculty of Management M.B.A. Program for the joint BCL/LLB and MBA. Information about the M.B.A. program is available on the MBA website.
- The School of Social Work M.S.W. Program for the joint BCL/LLB and MSW. Information about the M.S.W. program is available on the MSW website.
Finally, candidates should also indicate in their personal statement for law their reasons for wanting to pursue a joint degree.
