Program requirements

We have designed degree assessment forms so you can assess your academic progress. These are great tools to help you plan for upcoming terms and ensure you are on the right track to completing your Legal Studies degree!

Degree requirements are according to the academic year that a student was admitted to the Faculty of Arts or Legal Studies program. Select your calendar year from the list below to access your assessment form. If you are unsure which calendar year you are to follow, you can contact your undergraduate advisor.

Official program academic regulations and requirements are listed in the Undergraduate Studies Calendar.
