Law

Juris Doctor (JD)

Why choose Law?


As one of our law students, you'll benefit from a small cohort, one of the consistently highest articling placement rates in the country, and the option to combine your JD with an MBA, an MPP, or to earn an American law degree at the same time with our International Energy Lawyers Program, a joint JD/JD offered with the University of Houston Law Center. Our innovative Calgary curriculum will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need for future professional success, preparing you to join a constantly changing and challenging legal services market, and professional opportunities that extend beyond traditional legal practice. Previous study is required - You cannot enter the JD program directly from high school. The most up-to-date admission requirements can be found at law.ucalgary.ca.


You really never know where a career in law will take you. For instance, Tyler Shando likely had no idea he’d gain a different perspective of his home province prior to studying at UCalgary’s Faculty of Law. “As a board member with the Parole Board of Canada, I travelled all over the Prairies for hearings. From Grande Cache to Stony Mountain, you see a whole other side to Canada inside those prisons.

– Tyler S, JD'04
