In a recent blog post on JD/Phd programs in the US and abroad and their relative quality, Brian Leiter emphasizes that:

“In Canada, the best choice for the JD/PhD is Toronto, though the law school at Osgoode/York probably has the stronger jurisprudential group, but its philosophy department is not as strong […] Osgoode and McMaster Philosophy also have close relations, and the cluster of faculty there is clearly the best in legal philosophy proper in Canada.”
