UBC Law Launches a Distance Learning Program

The NCA would like to inform applicants that UBC Law has launched a Distance Learning Program. The Program consists of online, graduate-level law courses in Property Law, Canadian Public Law (Foundations of Canadian Law and Canadian Constitutional Law), Business Organizations and Canadian Criminal Law & Procedure. Designed to meet the needs of foreign-trained lawyers and law students working towards completing their NCA requirements, these online courses give students the flexibility to take UBC Law courses outside of a formal degree program and from anywhere in the world. Program details and registration information can be found on the Distance Learning Program’s website ( Registration for Fall (September – December) 2014 courses will open in July 2014. For more information, contact UBC Law’s Distance Learning Program at or visit

UBC Law’s Distance Learning Program is a voluntary program, neither required by the NCA or provincial law societies nor endorsed by the NCA. NCA applicants are reminded that they must have NCA approval of all courses they wish to take at law school prior to starting the course and that distance education courses, such as those offered at UBC Law, will not meet the in class requirement for NCA applicants who completed their LL.B./J.D. by distance education.
