Cornell Law School: International Dual Degrees
Cornell Law School offers a select group of students the opportunity to earn both a Cornell J.D. and a graduate law degree from one of Cornell’s four European partner institutions:
- J.D./Master en Droit, Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, is a four-year program, taught in French, which prepares graduates for admission to the bar in the United States and in France.
- J.D./Master of German and European Law and Practice (M.LL.P.), Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, is a three-year program taught in German which provides graduates with a profound knowledge of German and European law at both an academic and a practical level.
- J.D./LL.M. at the University of Pretoria, Faculty of Law, South Africa - a three-year English-language program
- J.D./LL.M. at the Universität Heidelberg – a three-year German-language program
- J.D./LL.M. at l’Université Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne - a three-year French-language program
Admission to the Programs:
Those interested in the J.D./Master en Droit or the J.D./M.LL.P. (but not the other dual degree programs) may apply as a part of their initial application to Cornell Law School. Persons admitted to Cornell Law School but not into a dual degree program upon initial application are free to apply during the first year application process.
All admitted Cornell Law School students can apply to the program of their choice during the Spring semester of their first year of law school. The annual deadline for filing an application is in February.
