J.D./M.A. Public Policy & Leadership

Educating Leaders for a Better Democracy


In the joint Juris Doctor/Master of Arts in Public Policy & Leadership program students will develop an understanding of the intersections of law and policy, while gaining new tools for effectively engaging in policy reform. These tools include: policy analysis, analytical skills, ethical leadership, and social justice advocacy. Students will be prepared to serve in leadership roles in government, nonprofit management, and educational institutions.

Students earn two graduate degrees (in Law and Public Policy), in less time than it would take to earn these two degrees separately. Full-time students can expect to complete the joint program in three to four years of study. Students must apply for each program separately and meet all admissions requirements in both Law and Public Policy.
