uSask changes law-degree designation to JD

June 28, 2010

The University of Saskatchewan's College of Law is joining several law schools in Canada in bestowing on its graduates Juris Doctor (JD) degrees instead of Bachelors of Law (LLB). A mail and e-mail survey of uSask law alumni revealed majority support for the change, and faculty supported the change unanimously. Adopting the JD designation will not affect college admission criteria, and alumni will have the option of changing their law degree to JD retroactively. uSask On Campus News
