Program Details

The J.S.D. program is a 60 unit (typically 3 year) doctorate level program. Candidacy for the J.S.D. degree is normally open only to those who have completed an LL.M. degree at an accredited law school with a comparable program.


Each J.S.D. student works closely with a faculty advisor who specializes in a field of law related to the candidate's research and typically chairs the candidate's dissertation defense committee. Candidates will also have two secondary supervisors who will guide and oversee the developing research.
