Faculty of Law announces major changes to LLM program

July 9, 2024 — 
The University of Manitoba has approved changes to the Faculty of Law’s Master of Laws (LLM) program in the spring of 2024. Graduate program applicants starting their studies in September of 2025 will have the opportunity to choose to complete either thesis or course-based LLMs. As well, applicants are no longer required to have a Juris Doctor (JD) or Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, but rather can apply with a non-law degree relevant to their proposed research area.

In defence of ADR in post-secondary complaints processes

June 21, 2024 — 
Joel Lebois is the first graduate of the Master of Laws (LLM) program from the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law to write his thesis entirely in French. Lebois is a proud Francophone and practicing lawyer in Manitoba. While working as in-house counsel at the University of Manitoba’s legal department, he realized that he wanted to deepen his knowledge of the law in the area of post-secondary institution complaints processes, and was drawn to the Robson Hall community, which would allow him to complete his degree in French.
