Joint-Degree Programs

Some law schools offer joint-degree programs, which allow students to obtain a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree in law and graduate degree in another field such as business, public policy, economics, and political science. The standard J.D. program is three years of study while a joint-degree program will require additional time. Some law schools allow students to create their own joint-degree program if appropriate. For more details, check the individual school websites. Many joint-degree programs require that students apply separately and be accepted by both schools. Each school will independently review and accept applicants.
