Degree Programs in law school: MD/JD (Joint Degree)

The standard law degree is the Juris Doctor, or JD.  Generally, most JD programs last 3 years, with some exceptions (some schools, like UMKC, offer part-time programs; other schools offer accelerated programs, which allow the students to potentially graduate after 2 � years). 

Many law schools also offer dual-degree programs, which provide the law student with the opportunity to receive a JD and a second graduate degree (usually, but not always, a Masters degree) in a shortened time period.  Some traditional joint degree programs include: JD/Masters in Business Administration (MBA); JD/Master’s in Public Administration (MPA); JD/MA (typical masters programs include Political Science, History, and International Studies).  While the normal JD program is three years, and the normal masters program is 2 years, the joint degree programs usually last only 4 years (saving the student one year!).

Finally, many law schools offer LLM degrees, which are advanced law degrees.  Generally, you must have a JD to be admitted into an LLM program.  Most LLM programs last 1 year, and they are usually specialized.  Typical LLM specializations include International Law and Tax Law.
