I´m surprised to see UofM on that list - it´s the last chance law school.

In Canada, the top choices are clearly the law schools at York University, Toronto (Osgoode Hall) and University of Toronto , which are also the top two law faculties in the country. ( British Columbia , McGill, and Victoria also boast leading Canadian law faculties, with McGill and Victoria having the most to offer philosophically-minded students.) In the United Kingdom, where law is an undergraduate degree, the most attractive choice is Oxford University, though the other leading law faculties-Cambridge University, University College London, London School of Economics-all have good offerings as well.

Osgoode has a good deal with NYU right now. Even though U of T offers a J.D-it is absolutely useless in the states outside of New York and Massachusetts-just like a Bachelor of Laws. However, Osgoode has a split-partnership where you can obtain both an LLB and an American J.D which is good in all 50 states in four years-soon to be 3.5 years. What I´m saying is do your last two years in New York. It´s not unheard of for NY lawyers to start off around $125,000 US. If you do well in NYU, you will be scouted by large firms, and you will make far more money than at a Canadian firm.

The question is, why would anyone want to pay extra tuition and stay extra years just so that they can get a TTT Osgoode degree on top of a NYU degree? The more logical choice would just be to go to NYU...

And it´s not like most Osgoode students get a choice, since NYU rejects most of them from that joint program.

By doing the joint degree at Oz and NYU you get both LLB/JD in 4 years and can practice, after bar exams, in either country. It is true NYU rejects most of the Oz applicants because there are limited spaces and higher prerequisites. UofT also has been saying they´ve got a joint program in the works, don´t know with who. Windsor and Ottawa both already have them too, with University of Detroit for Windsor and both Michigan State and American University for Ottawa. Unlike Oz, you can do joint degrees at Ottawa and Windsor in 3 years.

This guy went to Windsor and spoke highly of it:
