- Law Society of Alberta - 2005
- University of Alberta - LL.B. [Bachelor of Laws] - 2004
From time to time we get asked why Philip has a LL.B. [Bachelor of Laws] and not a J.D. [Juris Doctorate]. In Canada the LL.B. and J.D. are equivalent, and when Philip graduated in 2004, the University of Alberta Faculty of Law granted the LL.B. designation. Several years after Philip graduated, the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, amongst many other Canadian Universities, changed the designation they provided from the LL.B. to the J.D., and Philip has chosen to keep his LL.B.
We also from time to time we get asked why Philip does not have an undergraduate degree before he obtained his LL.B. [Bachelor of Laws], and that is because Philip was accepted into the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta early before he had finished obtaining his Bachelor in Science degree, and chose to pursue his legal career as soon as he could.
