Joint JD / MA Program
We offer a Joint JD/MA program for a J.D. in Law and an M.A. in Economics. Since the end of World War II there has been an enormous increase in the use of economic analysis and statistics in the study and practice of law. The new program is designed to provide lawyers with a rigorous foundation in economics and econometrics, to enable them to use the methods of the social sciences in the analysis of legal controversies.
Students in this program must be admitted to both the Law School and the Department of Economics and must complete all requirements for the Economics M.A. degree and all requirements for the J.D. degree. After admission to the Law School, the student must complete the first year of the J.D. program before electing additional economics courses.
