Motivated by the growing management/social science needs of attorneys and the increasingly intricate legal needs of society, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law offers several joint-degree programs that provide rigorous, integrated training effectively merging law and a number of allied fields.
To be enrolled in any of the joint-degree programs, you must submit separate applications and be admitted both to the School of Law and to the cooperative school. You are then required to complete the online program application form. A joint admissions committee, made up of faculty from both schools, will decide admission to the programs. Students are NOT permitted to join any joint-degree program after their second year of law school.
Students are required to fulfill the degree requirements of both schools as modified by participation in the joint-degree program. Students are able to complete any one of the joint programs in less time than two consecutive degrees would normally take.
