Program Overview

The Queen’s graduate program in Law is a unique program focused on the student. We have chosen to keep our program purposefully small. The result is an intimate Law School community in which students are able to develop intellectually under the personal mentorship of some of the leading legal scholars in Canada and the world. Our Faculty consists of leading legal scholars whose work has been influential nationally and internationally and who take seriously the responsibility of mentoring graduate students.

The LLM Graduate Program in Political and Legal Thought (PLT) is a 12-month collaborative degree that allows students to specialize in social, political, and legal theory. The only course of study of its kind in Canada, the PLT Program builds on the close connections that exist at Queen’s between the Departments of Philosophy and Political Studies and the Faculty of Law.

Method of Completion

LL.M. PLT: graduate paper option

Career paths - employment opportunities

Graduates of our program pursue careers in legal education, research & policy work, law professors at Universities throughout Canada & abroad, the legal profession and the judiciary. The former Judge Advocate General of Canada is a graduate of ours, as well as the former Dean of Law at the University of Sydney in Australia, the University Lecturer in Family Law at Oxford University, and the Associate Dean of Law at the University of Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania just to name a few. We also have former grads as lawyers for the International Labor Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva, the Anti-Corruption Bureau in Tanzania, the Attorney General in Uganda, and the USAID Rule of Law Project in Albania.
