It is possible for a law graduate from outside Quebec to apply for diploma or training equivalence by submitting an application to the Admissions Committee.

Since the content of educational programs taken by legal professionals abroad must be equivalent to those in Quebec and take the specifics of Quebec law into account, the committee generally recommends that, before entering the master’s of notarial law program, applicants take undergraduate refresher courses. Each case is subject to a specific examination on the part of the Admissions Committee. After reviewing the file, the committee will inform the applicant in writing of its decision within 90 days of receiving the application.

Steps to apply for equivalence:

  1. 1

    Register by email or phone for an information session
  2. 2

    Make an appointment to submit an official application in person or mail in your application
