SLU LAW offers dual degree programs in partnership with several schools within the University. Dual degree programs are designed to allow students to obtain two degrees in significantly less time (4-5 years, depending upon the degree) than if the degrees were obtained separately.
The dual degree student must meet the admissions criteria for both the School of Law and the school from which the doctoral or master's degree is sought. Application for both should be made either at the same time or during the student's first year of enrollment in the School of Law. Dual degree students are required to complete a minimum of 82 hours in the School of Law.
The School of Law has established 11 dual degree programs. In addition, the School of Law will consider fashioning a dual degree program to meet individual student interest:
- Juris Doctor and Master of Arts in Women's and Gender Studies
