Deciding Where to Apply 

Joint-Degree Programs

Some law schools offer joint-degree programs, which allow students to obtain a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree in law and a graduate degree in another field, such as business, public policy, foreign policy, or environmental studies. The standard J.D. program is three years of study while a joint-degree program usually requires additional time. Some law schools allow students to create their own joint-degree program. 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 applications and grant admission.
