Joint Degree Programs


UCLA Law's joint degree programs allow law students to gain specialized expertise to prepare them for wide-ranging professional pursuits.

UCLA Law has long been a leader in the interdisciplinary study of law. To pursue one of our eight formal joint degree programs, students must apply both to UCLA Law and directly to the other school. Applicants should contact the appropriate graduate school or department to obtain its application, and must meet the department's requirements and deadlines. Students interested in creating an individualized joint degree program, or pursuing a joint degree program with another university, must work with the Students Affairs office during their first or second years of law school to seek approval for the joint degree. Formal joint degree programs offered in cooperation with other distinguished UCLA professional schools and departments include Law and African-American Studies; Law and American Indian Studies; Law and Management; Law and Philosophy; Law and Public Health; Law and Public Policy; Law and Social Welfare; and Law and Urban Planning.
