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

Meeting and getting to speak with practitioners, professors, and upper year students helped me get a broader understanding of the many different career paths available in the legal profession. These interactions also gave me insight into the deep camaraderie within the school and the profession as a whole.
