Mohamed A. Mohamed, LLB, LLM, LLM (Canadian Common Law), Barrister & Solicitor
"I completed my law degree in Islamabad, got an LLM there and worked at the United Nations. When I came to Canada, studying at Osgoode served me in many ways. The Canadian Common Law LLM satisfied NCA requirements and helped me develop a solid background in Canadian common law in practical ways. In-class discussion with instructors and fellow lawyers improved my understanding and legal writing skills.”
Chunlin Nan, LLB, LLM (International Business Law), Junior Legal Consultant at Jones & Co.
"Osgoode’s International Business Law program provided me with an unexpectedly fantastic experience. With the help and encouragement of my professors, I never knew that I could handle such difficult challenges until I really tried."
Aaron Grinhaus, LLB, JD, LLM (Tax Law) Lawyer, Grinhaus Law Firm 
“Osgoode’s LLM in Tax Law has helped increase the value of my practice by augmenting the quality and depth of the advice I can provide to my clients. It was also a valuable opportunity to explore practical problems academically with some of the greatest legal minds in Canada, and helped me to better understand the issues that shape and influence the law.”
