J.D./LL.M. Compliance

The J.D./LL.M. in Organizational Ethics & Compliance dual degree option allows you to complete both the Juris Doctor and the LL.M. in Organizational Ethics & Compliance in seven semesters rather than the eight it would typically take to earn both degrees. You can finish the 88 credits required to earn the J.D., graduate with your class and take the bar exam in the summer, and then return and complete the LL.M. in just one more semester.

The LL.M. program requires 24 credit hours, including 3 required courses (9 hours) and 15 hours of electives. But as a J.D. student, if you plan your coursework with the LL.M. in mind, up to 12 credits of electives from your J.D. program can be applied to the LL.M.
