Juris Doctor (JD)
Why Choose Juris Doctor (JD)?
Our goal is straightforward: to prepare you for the successful practice of law. This includes traditional instruction in substantive law as well as the rigorous development of your analytical abilities. It is equally important to provide you with the opportunity to develop the skills lawyers use and apply them in a professional context. You can finish your JD in three years by studying in our full-time program. Our four-year part-time programs provide a convenient alternative. You can even enhance your JD with an MBA, MS in Accounting, MS in Organizational Leadership, MS in Engineering Management, Master of Regional Planning (UMass), or Master of Social Work (Springfield College) through our dual degree programs. Full-time faculty members teach all required day and evening courses, ensuring consistency in teaching excellence and academic rigor across all programs.
