 Peter A. Allard School of Law at UBC Law launches Distance Learning Program

The NCA would like to inform applicants that the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia has launched a Distance Learning Program consisting of online, graduate-level law courses in Property Law, Canadian Public Law (Foundations of Canadian Law and Canadian Constitutional Law), Business Organizations and Canadian Criminal Law & Procedure and Torts. Designed to meet the needs of foreign-trained lawyers and law students working towards completing their NCA requirements, these online courses give students the flexibility to take UBC Law courses outside of a formal degree program and from anywhere in the world.

Program details and registration information can be found on the Distance Learning Program’s web site. For more information, contact UBC Law’s Distance Learning Program or visit here.

This Distance Learning Program is a voluntary program, neither required by the NCA or provincial law societies nor endorsed by the NCA.  NCA applicants are reminded that they must have NCA approval of all courses they wish to take at law school prior to starting the course and that distance education courses, such as those offered at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia will not meet the in-class requirement for NCA applicants who completed their LL.B./J.D. by distance education.
