The School of Law offers dual degree programs in conjunction with the university's graduate schools. These dual degrees offer the concurrent pursuit of a JD degree along with a master of business administration (MBA) or a master of arts in international relations (MA). Since these programs allow the concurrent pursuit of two degrees, with some courses credited to both a JD degree and a master's degree, students can generally save one semester of time and expense. However, graduate credits may not be transferred to the law school until completion of the entire first year of law study is completed.
Students interested in dual degree programs must apply to and be accepted by both schools. Students generally begin the dual degree programs in their second year of law school.
