Save time and money when you get your J.D. and one of the following degrees:
To pursue non-J.D. courses offered by Liberty University in the dual degree programs during fall and spring semesters, you must have approval from the law school’s registrar and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. This approval ensures compliance with the law school’s policies regarding the total number of credit hours permitted for law school students.
Qualifications and enrollment in non-J.D. courses offered by Liberty University are established and managed by Liberty University and not the law school.
First-year law students may not take non-J.D. courses. It is the purview of the administration to limit a dual degree participant’s academic load while actively pursuing a juris doctorate degree if the current course load hinders the participant’s course of study in the J.D.
For further questions about the sequencing of a dual degree program, see the law school’s registrar and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
The dual degree programs are available to students enrolled in the juris doctorate program, or alumni of the School of Law. The applicant must apply to and be accepted by the appropriate Liberty University Graduate School entity having met all that school’s admission requirements for the non-J.D. degree.
As each department will have a distinct set of admission requirements, consult the School of Law’s registrar for details on specific criteria. The student applies through the School of Law’s registrar.
Current Liberty University School of Law students pay a block rate for fall and spring semester classes. This currently includes non-J.D. courses taken in one of the dual degree programs.
Courses taken during the winter or summer terms are not covered by the School of Law tuition rate.
