Faculty of Law

Bienvenue à la Faculté de droit de l’Université McGill!

McGill’s distinctive legal education is one of the best in the world. It crosses boundaries of language, jurisdiction, legal tradition, discipline, and culture. It equips jurists with the critical knowledge, skills, and ethical grounding to excel as problem solvers and architects of social order. It prepares graduates for a world where boundaries are porous and shifting—where people, goods, and ideas move further and faster than ever.

Our double-degree program explores legal traditions from a unique comparative and integrated perspective. Consistent with the Faculty of Law’s location on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka people and with the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, our double-degree program increasingly includes Indigenous legal traditions. Within our graduate program’s vibrant community, our master’s and doctoral students receive dedicated attention from a diverse group of leading researchers. Our doctoral students receive a preparation for law teaching that has no equal.

La Faculté de droit est située au cœur de Montréal, une métropole francophone caractérisée par un environnement culturel dynamique et pluraliste. Cet environnement cosmopolite a guidé notre mission fondamentale. L’enseignement et la recherche s’y déroulent en anglais et en français, en droit civil comme en common law.

The Faculty is outward-looking and international, recruiting professors from around the world. The BCL/JD class entering in 2019 included students born in 29 countries and speaking 15 mother tongues, and our graduate student population is drawn from five continents.

We earned our extraordinary reputation with our unique program and path-breaking research. Our professors are deeply committed to our students’ success. And we’re taking steps to be more inclusive towards a broad range of learners—and to better represent our diverse society, including Canada’s indigenous peoples.
