2023-2024 Academic Recruitment

Located at the foot of picturesque Mount Royal, in the heart of downtown Montreal, McGill University’s Faculty of Law is recognized as one of the best places in the world to study law. Our distinctive integrated program has become an international benchmark for contemporary legal education. The core of the undergraduate curriculum is taught across borders shaped by legal traditions and systems, notably those of the common and civil law and, increasingly, Indigenous legal traditions.

Our degrees at the master’s and doctoral levels attract leading emerging scholars from around the world, as well as established legal professionals pursuing further development. Many members of the graduate student community have earned prestigious awards, including Banting and Vanier fellowships.

The faculty maintains a dynamic, welcoming research environment, which fosters the ongoing intellectual and professional development of all professors. It is home to a vibrant trans-disciplinary research community of institutes, centers, and research groups, including the globally renowned Institute of Air and Space Law, which celebrated its 70th year of existence in 2022.
