Dual degree programs can usually be completed in four years. Students enrolled in these programs may receive up to nine hours of law school credit for work successfully completed in their other field of study. Most students begin their program of study in the School of Law with the remaining years divided between both programs.
Dual degree candidates must apply to both programs. Students may apply to their chosen master's program at the time that they apply to the School of Law or during the first year at the School of Law. Application for the J.D./M.E.L.P. degree program with Vermont Law School is made during the first year. Acceptance into a master's program does not affect the decision of the School of Law. Upon acceptance by both programs, students must complete a dual degree form. Students should request this form directly from the Office of the Law Registrar, Room 137.
