International Law Programs

Joint Degree Program Offered

The University of Miami School of Law is now offering a joint degree program in Law and Communications, the first interdisciplinary program at the University of Miami that will allow students to earn a J.D. and an M.A. in communication in less than three and a half years.

In this program, a law student can choose from three different M.A. programs within the School of Communication: journalism, public relations, and communications studies. The program will allow nine J.D. credits to be applied to the M.A. degree and six M.A. credits to be applied to the J.D. degree, saving the student 15 credits between the two programs.

Currently enrolled students can apply for the joint program by submitting a personal statement to sabraham@law.miami.edu. Applications are due April 1.

The Committee on Sudent Organizations (COSO) is now accepting applications for the 2011-2012 school year. Applications are due at the Smith Tucker Involvement Center at 5 p.m. on Friday. For more information, visit miami.edu/coso.
