Applicants must apply to, and be accepted by, both schools, although a joint coordinating committee of the two schools will consider the applications. Also, an applicant may apply to the business school during the first year of law school. Students who apply to enter the three-year J.D./M.B.A. program must have a minimum 3.3 grade point average during the fall semester of their first year in the Law School and should also plan to take the GMAT or GRE. Johnson may, on a case-by-case basis, waive the GMAT/GRE requirement for those candidates who have a GPA higher than 3.4 in the Law School and who have evidence of previous quantitative courses.
Tuition is paid to the Law School for five semesters and to the Johnson Graduate School of Management for three semesters.
The School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University offers a two-semester program for outstanding Law School graduates that leads to the master of industrial and labor relations (M.I.L.R.) degree. Both recent graduates and those working in the field of law may apply.
The program provides general coverage of industrial and labor relations and is suitable for those having little prior course work in the field. The M.I.L.R. program is normally completed in four semesters; however, law graduates who enter the special program can complete the program in one year.
An applicant must be a graduate of a school of law and meet the normal requirements for admission to the School of Industrial and Labor Relations. A candidate deficient in preparation in the social sciences is advised to do additional work before entry.
Cornell Law School and the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA) offer a four-year program that leads to a J.D. degree and a Master of Public Administration degree. Applicants must apply to, and be accepted by, both schools.
Cornell University’s dual J.D./Ph.D. program in developmental psychology and law will prepare the next generation of scholars who work on the interface between the law, psychology, and human development. Education at the Law School combines inspired teaching with cutting-edge scholarship in a close-knit and collegial intellectual community. Located in the College of Human Ecology, the Department of Human Development provides graduate students with world-class training in the general discipline of psychology, as well as focused training in one or more of its sub-areas of research: cognitive, social-personality, biological, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. The dual degree will provide Ph.D. students with the legal education that is necessary to conduct research and teach in this field at the highest level and will provide J.D. students with the research training that is necessary to practice and teach scientifically-based law.
