JD/MEM, JD/MPP, & JD/MTS Admissions Information

The application procedure is the same for each of the JD/MEM, JD/MPP, and JD/MTS dual degree programs. Submit a JD application to the Law School and indicate your intention to apply for the dual degree on that form. Concurrently, submit your application to the Nicholas School, Sanford School of Public Policy, or Divinity School for their degree program. Follow their directions to indicate that you are also applying to the Law School.

It is also possible to matriculate into one degree program at Duke and apply to the other during the first year of study.

Each school will complete its normal application review process, and you will receive separate decisions for each degree. These processes run on different timelines, so you are not guaranteed to receive the decisions at the same time.

If you are admitted to both degrees, you may choose where to begin your studies at Duke. Please be sure to notify the schools of your decision so that they can manage their classes appropriately.

Standardized Testing

The LSAT is required for all Law School dual-degree applicants. The MPP program will waive their GRE requirement for JD/MPP applicants. The MEM program requires the GRE for all applicants.
