One of the many advantages Miami Law students enjoy is participation in the life of a great university. The University of Miami offers a range of excellence across many disciplines and studying in a joint degree program allows J.D. students to strengthen academic study, boost professional expertise, and save time and tuition money over earning degrees separately.
These are degrees taken concurrently at the law school; usually students who participate in one of these programs and take the requisite number of credits during their J.D. studies can complete an LL.M. degree in only one additional semester.
Some students choose to combine their law studies with a program at another graduate school. Miami Law offers joint degrees in cooperation with many schools at University of Miami.
This unique program is a combination of both an LL.M and a Master's degree and is for those who were undergraduate business majors.
Some students choose to combine their law studies with a doctoral program at another graduate school. Miami Law offers the following specialized joint J.D./Ph.D. degrees:
The University of Miami is one of the few major universities to offer an Honors Dual Degree Program for undergraduates. Through this program, high school students with high academic ability gain admission to both undergraduate study at UM and to graduate study at Miami Law. This 3+3 option allows University of Miami undergraduates accepted into the Honors Program in Law to complete both degrees in six years. To apply and for more information visit the University of Miami Undergraduate Admission's Honors Program in Law webpage.
