Earn an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Laurier and a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Sussex, United Kingdom (UK) in six years.
In this program, you'll complete your first two years in one of four Laurier BA programs: Criminology, Human Rights and Human Diversity, Law and Society (in Brantford) or Political Science (in Waterloo). If you meet the GPS eligibility requirements, you can apply to the UK law program during your second year at Laurier and you are guaranteed an offer of admission to Sussex's Law School.
After completing your LLB, you'll return for one final year at Laurier to complete your BA. The final year at Laurier will provide you with an enriched program that will position you to successfully write the national accreditation exams leading to legal practice in Canada, or begin a rewarding career in a number of other law-related fields.
To progress through the program, and ultimately be admitted into the LLB program at Sussex, you must maintain a minimum GPA of 8 (equivalent to a B average) through your first two years at Laurier.
