Interdisciplinary Programs

Studying at Miami Law gives students access to schools and programs across the University of Miami campus and preparation for wide-ranging career opportunities. As law does not exist in a vacuum, a balanced, interdisciplinary education helps lawyers think creatively, pursue innovation, and succeed in their fields. With this in mind, Miami Law students have the opportunity to pursue this cross-disciplinary integration in many ways.
