The joint J.D.-M.A. program is open to those who have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university and whose undergraduate record indicates that the applicant has the capacity to complete the law and economics programs. Applicants for the J.D.-M.A. in Economics program must meet the admissions requirements of the School of Law, the Department of Economics and the Graduate School. Applicants must apply and be admitted to each school separately prior to entrance into the first year of the program. The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is the only required entrance examination for applicants. All undergraduate prerequisite courses (e.g., Econ. 520, Econ 522, and Math 121, Math 122 and Math 526) also apply. A student who enters the program while enrolled in the first year of the J.D. or M.A. in Economics curriculum must consult and obtain approval from both the School of Law and the Department of Economics. No student may enter the program after completing more than thirty credits in the School of Law or twelve credits in the Department of Economics.
