Joint Degree Programs

College of Law

University of Wyoming College of Law offers graduate students three double-major programs

Juris Doctorate

University of Wyoming College of law degrees

The University of Wyoming College of Law's Juris Doctor degree provides extensive offerings from renowned experts in energy, natural resources, business, tax, legal writing, family law, criminal law, international law, and many other areas.

 In our state-of-the art courtrooms and facilities, students learn to analyze, advocate, negotiate, litigate, write, and perform other tasks that will allow them to excel upon graduation. Students also have access to a vast array of “real world” training opportunities including clinics, practicums, externships, an intensive trial advocacy institute, local and trans-national negotiation exercises, and more.

Joint Degree Programs

Joint-degree programs allow students to pursue their Juris Doctor (J.D.) in conjunction with their master’s degree in one of the three different fields listed below.

The practice of law has become increasingly complex, requiring lawyers to think broadly as problem-solvers. Joint degree programs permit students to personalize their study of law by adding knowledge, skills, and analytical tools from other disciplines.

Capitalizing on the University's depth of resources, the College of Law collaborates with University graduate departments to offer multiple joint degree programs. Students must apply for admission to both programs; however, both departments will recognize a number of credits from the corresponding program to allow students to earn both degrees in a shorter period of time. The University of Wyoming College of Law offers three joint degree programs:

  1. J.D. / Masters in Environment and Natural Resources (E.N.R.)
  2. J.D./ Masters in Business Administration (M.B.A.)
  3. J.D./ Masters in Public Administration (M.P.A.)

Each graduate program has unique admission criteria, so interested students are encouraged to contact the respective program for application details. Once admitted to both programs, law students can begin taking non-law courses the summer following their first year of law school.
