The oldest law faculty in the country and one of the world’s most prestigious, McGill is at the vanguard of legal education. Allowing you to graduate with both civil and common law degrees, the McGill Integrated Program offers a unique and novel approach to understanding law. Indeed, it recently received an Outstanding Program in International Education Award from the Canadian Bureau of International Education. With a background in both legal traditions of the Western world, you’ll have the flexibility of practicing law in any province in Canada, or be equipped for an international career. While you’re studying, you’ll get a chance to apply what you’ve learned through various activities such as court clerkships, clinical programs and human rights internships.

Why do students choose McGill? The Faculty’s unrivalled reputation in Canada and abroad is one reason. The Faculty offers a program attuned to the global environment. Its relatively small size and the diverse backgrounds of both students and professors make it a vigorous and fascinating environment.
