joint-degree program in Law and International Affairs, J.D./M.S., permits completion of both degree programs concurrently. Interested applicants must first begin their study at the College of Law. Once enrolled in the first-year
law curriculum, interested applicants will complete all necessary documentation for the application process through the Department of International Affairs as well as a joint-degree application by the end of the first year in law school. All required documents should be returned to the College of Law Office of Admissions.
For the joint-degree program, typically both the GRE and LSAT must be taken in order to be considered. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0 or better and a minimum combined score of 1000 on the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE. Applicants who have scored a 158 or better on their LSAT will have their GRE requirement waived.
