Juris Doctor Program
The Queen’s University Senate approved a change to the designation from the Bachelor of Laws degree to the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree on February 28, 2008.

The Juris Doctor(J.D.) is a second-entry  professional degree in common law normally completed in three academic years of full-time study. It is the basis for admission for registration in a licensing process for each province of Canada, except for the province of Quebec, which is governed by a civil law regime. Through partnership with the Faculty of Law at the University of Sherbrooke, it is possible to obtain a civil law degree in a single academic year, following graduation with the J.D. at Queen’s University.

Each student is responsible for becoming informed about all Faculty rules and regulations pertaining to degree requirements and determination of standing, regulations and policies regarding examinations and written course work, and course selection. See the Chapter on Academic Regulations & Policies for detailed information.
