Christine Briggs

Our 2021 intake of students comes to us from diverse professional backgrounds – from lawyers to senior project managers to corporate directors. Geographically, our students are spread out across Canada (though there are a few from outside of Canada as well!). This year, the Admissions Committee was extremely impressed by the applications to the Part-time Professional LLM in Business Law program, and we’re excited to introduce you to two students from the incoming class.
