The LLM program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law focuses on a diverse range of areas like constitutional law, international human rights, law and economics, and legal theory. Students may choose to pursue either thesis (long or short, in combination with some coursework), or coursework-only (with a course-based writing requirement). The thesis-intensive format allows students to elect to write a thesis of between 4 and 16 credits, written in combination with some coursework. The longer thesis is aimed at law students who have demonstrated a strong potential for advanced research and writing in accordance with the standards of the Faculty of Law, many of whom desire a career in legal academia. The shorter thesis option is aimed at law students who wish to undertake significant independent research but also want exposure to other areas of law through coursework.
