The School of Law and the University Graduate School offer a combined program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Law and Social Science degree. This program involves interdisciplinary research and problem solving in areas where law and social science overlap.
Applicants must apply separately to, and be admitted by, the Law School, the collaborating academic department, and the University Graduate School (which awards all PhD degrees). Applicants whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL results. The collaborating academic department may also require applicants to take additional tests such as the GRE.
Each PhD candidate will be assigned an advisory committee consisting of at least two faculty members from the Law School and at least two faculty members from the collaborating academic department. The chairperson of the advisory committee will serve as the candidate’s primary academic advisor.
