JD Programs

Our primary academic program is the juris doctor (JD) degree, which includes our Accelerated JD program and our joint degree programs: JD-MBA, JD-PhD, JD-LLM in International Human Rights, and JD-LLM in Taxation. To be considered for the JD program, you must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university or expect to finish one by the end of the academic year in which you apply.

The Admissions Committee selects the incoming JD class from more than 4,000 applicants. The Committee's decisions are based on a number of factors, including:

  • an applicant's academic records
  • application information
  • letters of recommendation
  • LSAT scores
  • extracurricular activities
  • demonstrated interest in people and their institutions
  • personal circumstances, and
  • other information bearing on the applicant's qualifications for the study of law.

In addition, more than 90 percent of incoming students possess at least one year of post-undergraduate experience; and more than 80 percent were interviewed by an admissions staff member, an alumnus, or a current student through our unique admissions interviewing program.
