Coordinated JD/PhD Program

HLS Students in Class

The Law School offers a coordinated degree program with the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). Students in the program earn a JD and a PhD, allowing them to integrate the study of law with their doctoral studies. To be admitted to the program, students must apply to and be separately admitted to both the Law School and to GSAS. The program is open to students interested in any GSAS department. For more information, see the JD/PhD Program Description. The Law School has a financial assistance program for some eligible JD/PhD students. Additional questions about the coordinated JD/PhD program may be addressed to Thomas Graca, HLS Director of Academic Affairs, and to Patrick O'Brien, GSAS Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
