Our Law program provides an international learning experience that is one of the first of its kind for a Canadian university.

Earn a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Laurier and a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Sussex, United Kingdom (UK) in only six years.

You'll be exposed to Laurier's commitment to social justice and global engagement and, as an added perk, an LSAT score is not required for admission. 

This program is available with the following Laurier programs: Political Science and Philosophy on the Waterloo campus and Criminology, Human Rights and Human Diversity, Humanities with Leadership Foundations and Law and Society on the Brantford campus.
