About

The Philosophy and Law dual-degree program from the Catholic University of America is open to students who have received a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university and demonstrated a satisfactory performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

Overview

The dual-degree program in Philosophy and Law from the Catholic University of America is designed to equip students for a career in law by teaching them to think about the law with a depth and facility that otherwise might not be developed.

The study of philosophy provides logical and analytical tools important for the study and the practice of law. In fact, a number of prominent judges and law scholars enjoyed the benefit of legal and philosophical training at The Catholic University of America.

Degree requirements

The program requires a student to apply and be accepted by both the Columbus School of Law and the School of Philosophy. Upon admission to the program, with the approval of the Dean of the School of Law and the Dean of the School of Philosophy, the student designs an elective curriculum that qualifies the candidate for both J.D. and M.A. degrees. 

Certain courses in law are recognized as fulfilling requirements in the School of Philosophy, and certain courses in philosophy are accepted as fulfilling requirements in the Columbus School of Law. Sometimes, a student can complete both degrees in a three-year period rather than the four-year period that would be required if the degrees were pursued separately.
