About

Through the Law and Graduate Studies program of the University of California, Irvine (UCI), students can pursue a J.D. from the Law School concurrently with a master’s or Ph.D. in virtually any UCI graduate program.

Overview

Designed to be one of the broadest programs of its kind, the Law and Graduate Studies program of the University of California, Irvine (UCI) allows enormous latitude and options – giving students a chance to combine law with graduate research degrees in such areas as humanities, social sciences, life sciences, information and computer sciences, physical sciences and engineering, or with graduate professional degrees in business, urban planning, education, and public health.

PLGS was created to promote interdisciplinary study of law while also enabling students to obtain both a J.D. and an M.A., M.B.A., M.S. or Ph.D. in less time than would be required to earn both degrees separately. The normative time for completion of the program is four years for J.D./Master's and J.D./M.B.A. and seven years for J.D./Ph.D. combinations.
