According to the announcement, the partnership:
“will allow eligible JD students at either law school to enroll in an LLM program at the partner institution in lieu of their final term or semester of JD study. Participating students will receive JD and LLM degrees in three and a half years of full-time study: two and a half years in a JD program and approximately one year in an LLM program.”
For more details on eligibility, academic requirements, registration, and graduation, see the UBC Course Calendar.
This is the third joint legal education program currently available to Allard Law students; they can also participate in programs with the University of Hawaii at Manoa William S. Richardson School of Law, and the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law.
