So, my alma mater, the U of S, is considering changing the degree that they confer from an LLB to a JD. A survey has been sent to alumni, which you can view here:
I've canvassed those that I know in the legal community here, and it would seem that not many are too concerned with the difference between the two.
I can see, though, that it is the wave of the future, as it would seem that more Canadian law schools are making the switch.
I can also see the benefits that would follow with being able to travel and work abroad.
Interesting. If they do make the switch, will I opt to have my degree retroactively changed to a JD? Must consider.
