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."
