UManitoba Faculty of Law introduces changes to LLM program


The University of Manitoba recently approved changes to its Master of Laws (LLM) program. Starting in September 2025, students can choose between completing either a thesis or course-based LLM. Additionally, applicants will no longer be required to have a Juris Doctor or a Bachelor of Law degree but can instead apply with a non-law degree that is relevant to their research area. “The benefits of these new program features are significant for both the legal community and Manitobans,” said UManitoba Dean of Law Dr Richard Jochelson. “They enhance access to justice, promote citizen advocacy, and provide more opportunities for individuals to pursue legal education for the betterment of others.”
