This is a Research based Program.
LLM students take courses that enable them to develop a strong research foundation and deepen their knowledge in a given legal or socio-legal field. Courses include Research Methods, a Graduate Seminar and Legal Theory.
Students enrolled in the LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream complete courses in law teaching, lecturing, course design and pedagogical assessment.
- An emphasis on rigorous scholarship centred on our institutional themes of Access to Justice and Transnational Law.
- An innovative experiential learning component that allows students in the LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream to complete a certificate in university teaching, and to engage in law teaching during the course of their study.
- Windsor Law has earned distinction among law schools for its emphases on access to justice, community service and transnational law — and our faculty reflect this focus.
- Together, they form a vibrant intellectual and social community that provides our students with an appreciation of law as a vehicle for legal and social change.
- Two Streams of Study
- One-year(12-month) regular LLM
- Two-year (24-month) LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning.
- The central requirement for both streams is the completion of original publishable research. This major written piece of original research, or thesis, may be submitted as a single document or as a set of related publishable papers addressing a single research question and totalling approximately 100-125 pages.

Windsor Law is home to a variety of active research centres, initiatives and journals that showcase faculty member expertise and in which graduate students may become involved including:
- Transnational Law and Justice Network (TLJN)
