DePaul's JD/LLM (Juris Doctor/Master of Laws) program gives students
an opportunity to intensively develop knowledge and practice skills in a
specific area of law, earning two degrees in only three years of study.
Students in the program may simultaneously earn a JD and an LLM, an
internationally recognized postgraduate law degree, in one of four areas
of concentration: Health Law, Intellectual Property Law, International Law or Taxation. DePaul is one of only a few law schools in the nation to offer this accelerated joint degree option.
The JD/LLM program is designed to provide students with advanced
training through a personalized educational experience. Students learn
directly from and connect with faculty experts in their area of study
and are exposed to numerous networking opportunities with alumni and
practitioners in the field. Students also benefit from the programs
overall flexibility, including customized course schedules and the
option to enroll at any time during the JD program. Students may choose
to complete a masters thesis or enroll in an intensive writing course
to tailor their experience.
