Dual JD Program
The JD/PhD Program is highly interdisciplinary, focusing on issues in ethics and philosophy as they relate to law. A student must take 76 credits in law and 45 credits in philosophy to fulfill the requirements for a PhD, or 30 credits in philosophy (or 24 plus a thesis) for an MA.
For further details, see the Graduate Handbook.
Up to six credits for law school courses may be double counted towards the MA and up to nine for the PhD, so long as the courses are shown to contribute significantly to the student's study in philosophy. Requirements for the JD include:
- Satisfactory completion of the upper-class legal writing requirements
- One course in Professional Responsibility
All applications to the program may be made through the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.
