Osgoode J.D./LL.B. Program

NYU School of Law and Osgoode Hall Law School of York University offer a
combined program of study, a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from NYU and a
Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from Osgoode. Students interested in this
joint degree program must apply and be accepted to both law schools. Application
may be made simultaneously to both schools or a student may apply to the
second school while enrolled as a third semester student at either school.

Students may elect to begin their program of study at either school and
must complete years one and two at that school and then complete years
three and four at the other school. Students are required to complete the
entire first year program of the first school attended and are required to
earn a minimum of 26 credits in the second year at NYU and a minimum of 30
credits in the second year at Osgoode. Additionally, all students must
complete the basic courses in Constitutional Law and Professional
Responsibility at NYU, and must complete two writing requirements, writing
B and a writing A, a substantial research paper, at either school. Students
will receive 30 transfer credits to be cross-counted for both degrees and
must complete the required number of credits, 83 for NYU and 94 for
Osgoode, within the four-year time period. This JD/LLB is a four-year
program and cannot be completed in less time.
