“The LLM in Canadian Common Law is an excellent learning opportunity. The LLM experience is much more valuable than completing the NCA challenge exams alone. You have the opportunity to benefit from your professor’s knowledge and experience and I was repeatedly impressed by the professor’s willingness to connect with students as fellow legal professionals. The LLM program helped me be more confident and it opened many doors for me in my legal career in Canada.”
