Eligibility to Apply
Students registered in the J.D. or LL.B. program at accredited Canadian and American universities are eligible to apply.
International law students fluent in English at universities which are in exchange partnership with Queen's University are also eligible. International students may be required to provide proof of fluency in English.
Non-law students with a relevant background in international studies or qualified individuals with work experience in international human rights will be considered for admission to the Public International Law program.
Students are encouraged to apply early as the number of positions is limited.
Applications from Queen's Law students and up to 10 Dalhousie Law students will be given priority and an equal chance of acceptance until October 26, 2012 (Note that the deadline has been extended to November 19 for Dalhousie students because the information session will be held on November 2). If there are more applications from qualified Queen's and Dalhousie students than places in any of the programs by the deadline, a lottery will be held. Qualified students who are not accepted through such a lottery will be assigned places on a waiting list by lottery.
Applications from students from other universities, and applications from Queen's and Dalhousie Law students received after October 26, 2012, will be considered in the order received, provided space remains.
A student who applies for a scholarship or bursary (see below) when applying for admission should receive responses to the scholarship, bursary and admission applications at the same time. A student offered a place in one of the programs generally has ten days to respond.
No applications can be accepted after March 15, 2013, even if spaces remain in any of the programs.
Please select the International Business Law Business Law Program or the Public International Law Program. Due to conflicts in field trip and class times, students are not able to take a combination of courses from different programs.
Queen's Law students may not take courses at the Bader International Study Centre that overlap substantially with coursework previously completed, nor will they be permitted to enroll in courses for credit at Queen's that overlap substantially with work that they have completed at the Bader International Study Centre.
Students from other universities should consult with their Faculty Advisor to ensure that the courses in the selected program can be recognized for transfer credit.
