The Graduate Diploma in Law for Law Enforcement Professionals is the only program of its kind in Canada. Designed and co-taught by law enforcement professionals, this innovative program focusses on the substantive law issues–as contrasted with the legal procedural issues–confronting policing professionals in their day-to-day work.

This flexible, part-time program is designed to meet the needs of all professionals working in the sector. The program is delivered in small group seminars over a two-year period. There is one two-day in-person requirement at the on-set of the program for Policing and the Charter. The remainder of the program’s courses are evening courses which students can participate in in-person or remotely via video conferencing.
