Business Law Option

The fields of law and business are very complimentary and provide excellent career opportunities.

The Business Law program is typically a six-year combined program that allows you to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Juris Doctor (JD) or Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree in less time than if the two programs were taken separately.

Students who are admitted to an approved law school after three years of the BBA program can receive credit from their first year of law school to complete their business degree. Students will then complete the remaining requirements of their law degree and ideally obtain the JD or LLB two years later.

Our students have been admitted to many different law schools, and thereafter, successfully completed the combined program. These schools have included:

  • University of Alberta
  • University of Saskatchewan
  • University of Victoria
  • University of Western Ontario
Students interested in the combined program should consult an academic advisor after admission in to the Hill School of Business to assist in planning your program appropriately.


"The business law option offered through the Paul J. Hill School of Business allowed me to pursue my interests in business while working toward both a Bachelor or Business Administration Degree and Law Degree in a shorter time period than if I had done them separately. Through the combined program, I was able to engage in a variety of classes that led me to excel in my studies in law school and well into my law career. I truly believe the business law option offered through the Hill School set me up for success in my law career.”
