Law/Public Policy (J.D./M.P.P.)

Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Law
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Law (LL.B, J.D., B.C.L.)Public Policy Analysis
Description The combined JD/Masters in Public Policy levers the considerable synergies between the study of law and that of public policy, ranging from economic and social policy issues to international matters. The combination of these two degree programs allows students in each of the Faculty of Law and the School of Public Policy and Governance to profit from a far richer offering of highly relevant courses and associated intellectual discourses than would be permitted by each degree program offered discretely. The combination of these degree programs will provide students with an opportunity to integrate public policy considerations into their study of the law and, in turn, add a legal perspective into their study of public policy. The JD/Masters in Public Policy program is designed for students interested in studying the intersections of law and public policy. The combined program permits the completion of both degree programs in four years, rather than the five years that it would take to complete them independently. Applicants must apply to and be accepted into each program separately. Students must satisfy both the JD and the MPP requirements before either degree may be conferred.
