Motivated? Four Years To Completion

Through Pace's joint degree programs, a student may earn a JD while working on a second advanced degree. By enrolling in a joint degree program, a full-time student may complete both degrees within four years, instead of the five years of study required when each degree is pursued separately. Part-time students can complete a joint degree program in as few as six years.

If you are interested in obtaining a joint degree, you must apply separately–and be admitted–to both Pace Law School and the relevant joint degree partner school. Full-time students must submit applications no later than during their fourth semester at Pace Law School; part-time students must apply no later than during their fifth semester.

The following joint degrees are available through Pace Law School:

  • JD/LLM in Environmental Law
  • JD/Master of Business Administration
    with Pace University Lubin School of Business
  • JD/Master of Public Administration
    with Pace University Dyson College of Arts and Sciences
  • JD/Master of Arts in Women's History
    with Sarah Lawrence College
  • JD/Master of Environmental Management
    with Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
  • JD/Master of Science in Environmental Policy
    with Bard College - Bard Center for Environmental Policy
