The Joint J.D./LL.M. Program offers students at the University of Miami School of Law an opportunity to earn both degrees over either six semesters and two summers of study, or over seven full semesters. The Joint Degree Program allows 12 LL.M. credits to be applied to the J.D. degree.
Miami Law Students - Applications for the Joint J.D./LL.M. under either option will be accepted from full-time first year law students from the University of Miami School of Law as early as the spring of their 1L year.
Students From Other Law Schools - Students enrolled at other law schools who wish to apply to the joint J.D./LL.M. Program may do so in their 2L year. Applicants from other law schools must submit a letter from their home school dean confirming that our Graduate Program credits will be accepted for transfer toward their J.D. degree.
Students interested in the joint degree program should contact Program Coordinator Laura Adams at 305-284-4918, firstname.lastname@example.org.
"In nine months the Graduate Program in Estate Planning taught me concepts and techniques that would have taken me years to learn through continuing legal education course and private practice. It was a great way to transition to a career in estate planning".
