Canadian Law student describes his Brunel experience

To practise law in Canada, students with a law degree from outside Canada will need to earn a Certificate of Qualification from the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA).

NCA Certificate of Qualification

A number of the modules taught on the Brunel GE programme are deemed to be so similar between the UK and Canada that once you have passed them in the UK with a minimum grade set by the NCA you will not need to repeat these exams in Canada.  There are a number of other subjects specific to Canadian law which all law graduates from outside Canada will be required to complete.  These requirements are set by the NCA, and students who wish to work for NCA accreditation should consult the NCA website and policy to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest requirements. 

Studying Law at Brunel will set you up well for achieving NCA accreditation, if this is your goal.  We communicate information about sessions held by the NCA to advise you on the process involved in working towards accreditation with our Canadian students regularly.
