Students may simultaneously complete the requirements for a Juris Doctor from Western New England University School of Law and a Master of Social Work from the Springfield College School of Social Work in four academic years. The JD/MS in Social Work may be especially useful in such practice areas as representing the disabled, child welfare, family law, juvenile justice, mental health, social welfare policy, domestic violence, law enforcement, human rights, and legal aid services.
Those interested in this program must apply to each program separately. Student should apply to the JD program first and, during their first year of law school, apply to the MSW program.
