The JD program comprises three years of full-time study or six years of part-time study, each divided into two sessions of 13 weeks. The program is designed to satisfy the requirements of the Law Societies of common law Canada for admission to the respective Bars.

Combined Degree Programs

The Faculty of Law offers combined degree programs with the Haskayne School of Business, a combined JD/MBA program, and the Faculty of Environmental Design, a combined JD/MEDes program. Students wishing to obtain either combined degree must be admitted to each Faculty through the regular admissions process of each Faculty. Successful applicants may then apply to the combined JD/MBA or JD/MEDes Combined Degree Committee which consists of members of the academic staff of both Faculties. The Combined Degree Committee makes decisions on who will be admitted into the combined degree programs. Each combined degree program is a four year program. Interested applicants should contact the Student Services Officer for additional information.


The Faculty of Law offers graduate work leading to both a thesis-based and a course-based LLM degree. The graduate program is confined to the areas of natural resources, energy and environmental law. See the Faculty of Graduate Studies Calendar for further details.
