Since 1988, students studying natural resources, energy and environmental law from around the world have come to the University of Calgary to pursue their thesis-based LLM degrees. In September 2007 we added a course-based LLM stream to our graduate programs. Adding this route to a graduate degree allows the Faculty to better meet the needs of lawyers engaged in private, corporate and government practice in the natural resources, energy and environmental law sectors of the economy. The course-based LLM will also appeal to international students trained in civil law legal systems who seek an introduction to the common law and an opportunity to take courses and seminars on a variety of natural resources, energy and environmental law topics. Transfer between the thesis-based and course-based streams of the LLM program is possible.
