Useful Information

This program, which is offered in French, combines the study of commerce and of common law, allowing individuals interested in management and future law professionals to thoroughly understand the issues and analyses involved in these two complementary disciplines. The program allows students to complete the requirements of both programs in six years, equipping graduates with two separate degrees: a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce (with or without “French Immersion” notation for Anglophone students) and the Juris Doctor (J.D.) designation. These degrees allow graduates to write provincial bar exams and practice law anywhere in Canada (except in Quebec).

Please note that 60% of all BCom courses followed under the combined program must be in French. This program could be conducted in French immersion.
