Law of Leadership - offered in 2018


The GPLLM in the Law of Leadership is the first degree of its kind in Canada.  It will provide leaders in the non-profit, higher education, health, public and private sectors with a robust legal education in the areas of law with which leaders of sophisticated institutions most frequently engage and in which they need to be conversant. 

Program Length and Structure

The GPLLM is a full-time executive program that is one-year in length and offered in the evenings and on weekends in order to accommodate the schedules of busy professionals. The program consists of three terms (September to December, January to April, and May to August), each of which starts with a short residential module at the law school. The schedule offers a deliberate balance between rigorous academic engagement, and respect for your personal and professional commitments.


The GPLLM curriculum is carefully curated in order to provide you with exposure to the legal issues and problems that are most timely and relevant.  Students will have the opportunity to work on real-world driven problems, in teams as well as individually.  The skills and knowledge you acquire in the program will immediately inform how you approach the problems and challenges you face with an entirely new – and transformative – skill set.

The program consists of ten courses. Students must complete five core courses as well as five electives, several of which may be chosen from a concentration other than that in which you are registered. On top of this, the program provides numerous opportunities for participants to engage with faculty, guest speakers and industry experts.

The first GPLLM cohort in the Law of Leadership will begin their studies in September 2018.
