Joint Degree in Law & Public Policy (JD/MPP)

Scalia Law offers a Joint Degree in Law and Public Policy (JD/MPP) that provides students with an opportunity to master the fundamentals of legal and policy analysis. Upon completion of the graduation requirements of both schools, students of the joint degree program will receive both a JD from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University and an MPP from theSchar School of Policy and Government. Both degrees can be achieved on a full-time basis in approximately four years, instead of the five years that would be required if each degree were pursued sequentially.

The deadline for completing the supplemental application form for the JD/MPP degree is June 1 for fall admission or December 1 for spring admission.
