Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Equity Studies
Several law schools offer Juris Doctor degrees specializing in equity studies or human rights. To be admitted to these law programs, students generally must have completed at least 3 years of a 4-year undergraduate program with at least a B+ average. Some schools require the entire completion of an undergraduate degree. The law school admission test (LSAT) must have also been written with a score of at least 159 (and the higher the score, the better, with a maximum of 180).
To be admitted to a graduate research program in equity studies, students must have completed an undergraduate degree in equity studies or related discipline (such as gender studies, law, or political science) with at least a B+ average. Previous work experience in an equity studies environment (eg. legal studies) is considered an asset. The student must also have a prospective supervisor chosen prior to final admission.
To be admitted to a graduate LLM law program in human rights, students must have a JD degree with at least a B+ average. A second undergraduate degree or demonstrated research and writing ability is normally required for a thesis-intensive (as opposed to a coursework-intensive) LLM program.
