Applicants must apply to and be accepted by each school independently. Thus, applicants must satisfy the admission requirements of both schools. Although there is no special consideration given to joint degree applicants, interest in such programs should still be mentioned in an appropriate space on the admission application for each institution.
Applicants may apply concurrently to both institutions or apply after beginning study at the law school. All students, regardless of where they begin their study, should meet with advisors at both institutions to discuss their joint degree status.
It is recommended that interested students complete and file the law school application between October 1 and February 1, although there is no actual filing deadline. Filing deadlines and admission requirements should be obtained from each institution. Contact information for all of the universities offering joint degree programs with Brooklyn Law School can be found on the Program Descriptions page.
Credits earned outside the Law School and used toward a J.D., including non-Law School credits toward a joint degree, count toward the overall credits required for graduation, but do not count toward the 65 “classroom credits” required for graduation. For further information, please contact the Registrar’s office or refer to our Student Handbook.
