Combined Degree Programs

The Faculty of Law offers combined degree programs with the Haskayne School of Business (a combined JD/MBA program) the School of Public Policy (a combined JD/MPP program) and the University of Houston (a combined JD/JD program). Students wishing to obtain any of these combined degrees must be admitted to each Faculty through the regular admissions process. Students who have completed their first year of either program may still apply for a combined program by meeting the normal application and admission requirements for the other faculty. Students are generally only admitted to the International Energy Lawyers Program after completing the first year at either the University of Calgary or the University of Houston.

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, as well as a Post-baccalaureate Certificate program. The graduate program focuses on the areas of natural resources, energy and environmental law. For more information see the Faculty of Graduate Studies Calendar.
