"My classmates provided a very multicultural environment in class and out of it, and were happy to share their experiences and offer guidance. Since they were going through different stages of their careers themselves, the richness of their in-the-field experiences was outstanding."

"The Professional LLM in Canadian Common Law was valuable in a number of ways. Firstly, the program provides students with the necessary knowledge, tools and career support for learning Canadian common law and preparing to enter the Canadian legal marketplace. Secondly, every student’s background and legal work experience gives rise to engaging conversations and the opportunity to learn from one another. Finally, the professors are practitioners and well-versed in their respective areas, which provides a valuable in-depth learning experience from academic, theoretical and practical perspectives."
