About the Distance Learning Program:

In its Strategic Plan, the Allard School of Law committed to enhancing curricular flexibility through implementing distance learning opportunities for students.

To that end, and thanks to the generous support of the Flexible Learning Initiative, the Franklin Lew Innovation Fund, and the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund, a Distance Learning Program was launched in September 2014, consisting of online versions of four graduate-level courses.

The Distance Learning Program presents a unique opportunity for foreign-trained law students and lawyers to work towards the accreditation requirements for practicing law in Canada.  Designed by faculty members and leaders in the field, these online courses give students the flexibility to take graduate-level law courses outside of a formal degree program and from anywhere in the world.
