J.D.-M.P. Program

The Law School offers a combined program with the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning of the School of Architecture in which the student may earn both the degrees of Master of Planning (M.P.) and the J.D. in four years’ time. This program is similar in format to the JD.-M.B.A. program. Thus, a student must be independently admitted both to the Law School and to the Architecture School, Department of Planning. The student spend one full year in each school during his or her first two years in the program. Twelve credits earned in planning courses may be counted toward the J.D., and nine hours of credit earned in Law School courses may be counted toward the M.P.
