LLB (Hons): JD Canadian Pathways
Are you interested in practising law in Canada or a Canadian university graduate? Several of our LLB degrees have Canadian pathways offering modules in Canadian Law that will help prepare you for the Canadian NCA (National Committee on Accreditation) exams.*
We have trained more practising lawyers than anyone else in the UK and, as over 90% of our tutors are qualified lawyers, our students learn how to apply law in practice and develop the transferable skills demanded by employers.
We have several courses at our London Bloomsbury campus offering Canadian law modules in ‘Foundations of Canadian Law’ and ‘Canadian Constitutional Law’.
‘Foundations of Canadian Law’ will give you a sound knowledge of the history, principles and main sources of the Canadian legal system, while the ‘Canadian Constitutional Law’ module concerns the history of Canadian Constitutional law and basic constitutional principles.
We have a growing number of students from Canada studying our courses and offer these two Canadian modules on the following courses:
For students who do not already hold a degree, our LLB is very different to most traditional three-year law degrees. It’s designed to be the most relevant and well-rounded degree-level education available to support you in achieving your career ambitions. It is highly distinctive as one of the most professional three-year undergraduate law degrees in the UK.
Our LLB (Hons) Law two-year Accelerated degree is designed to support you into the next stage of your professional legal training or to start your career as soon as possible. It’s taught by the same tutors and using the same high-quality teaching methods as our three-year law degree but is a faster, more intensive route. So it’s designed for those who can dedicate more time to their weekly studies.
Our LLB Senior Status is a two year LLB programme designed for students who already hold a degree. This allows students to gain a UK Qualifying Law Degree in just two years, as well the opportunity to select three LLB course options that suit your areas of interest. This includes the two optional Canadian modules to give you an excellent foundation in Canadian Law.
In order to take the JD Canadian pathway on each of these courses you should apply for your choice of the three courses offering these Canadian modules at our London Bloomsbury campus and then select the optional Canadian modules during your studies.

I would definitely recommend The University of Law to other international students. The University has so much more to offer than just classes and the overall experience has been amazing. The administrative staff and the tutors were always very helpful and provided great support. I plan on going back to Canada, where I will apply to take the NCA (National Committee on Accreditation) exams and then begin to practice the law in Canada.Pamela Rekhi LPC student from Canada
