New PhD program available at UCalgary Law

The law school received government approval in December 2020.

The Faculty of Law is pleased to announce that it will begin offering a new PhD program in Law, and is accepting applications for a September 2021 start.

The PhD program in Law gives qualified students the opportunity to engage in sustained research in an area of interest to them, under the supervision of our diverse, energetic faculty members.

“We are delighted to be able to announce that our application to begin offering a PhD program in Law has now received provincial approval," says Associate Dean and Graduate Program Director Dr. Lyndsay Campbell, PhD. "Being able to offer a PhD is a real milestone for our Faculty, and it builds on the recent expansion of our LLM programs. We are excited to be able to expand our graduate student cohort and the scope of the research being done in the Faculty of Law.”

The PhD program is for students passionate about research and writing in a focused area of law, and who may be interested in an academic or research career.

Applications are due January 15, 2021.
