MEM or MF/Juris Doctor in Environmental Law (MEM/JD or MF/JD)

Duke’s four-year concurrent MEM/JD or MF/JD degree prepares students to forge a sustainable future through leadership in national and international law and legal practices.  The ability to apply scientific, management, legal and regulatory knowledge for the resolution of environmental and natural resources issues is at the forefront of our programs.

To satisfy these demands, the Nicholas School and the School of Law have a cooperative arrangement to allow pursuit of concurrent Master of Environmental Management and Juris Doctor degrees.
