Students must complete the requirements for a PSM degree
and the requirements for a J.D. (see the College of Law).
The first year of study will be exclusively in the College of Law. Up to 12 PSM graduate credits will be allowed toward the J.D. degree. To receive this credit, a student must receive a grade of B
or higher in a course approved by the College of Law. If a student fails to complete PSM, no more than 6 credits will be allowed toward the J.D. degree.
Up to 6 law school credits will be allowed toward the PSM degree from pre-approved lists of classes. J.D./PSM students can use law classes to satisfy any two of the subgroups as part of the Professional Skills Courses Requirement. If a student fails to complete the law program, the student will be required to satisfy all requirements of the PSM Program before receiving the degree.
