This program is offered jointly by WCL and the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law, Common Law Section.

After four years of legal study, but only three years of law school tuition, students simultaneously earn the JD degree from WCL and the JD degree from the University of Ottawa. Students study law from a different perspective, gain a comparative understanding of the common law system, acquire the legal skills to practice law in both the United States and in Canada, increase their job opportunities and qualify to complete the legal requirements in both countries to become licensed, practicing attorneys.

Graduates from this program currently work in either Canada or the US practicing international tax law, international commercial arbitration and energy regulatory law.
