Interested in the HLS-University of Cambridge joint degree program? Application deadline is January 9.

A reminder that Wednesday, January 9, 2013 is the deadline for current 2Ls to apply to spend the 2012-2013 academic year at the University of Cambridge, under the HLS-Cambridge joint degree program. 

Students selected for the program spend their 3L year in Cambridge and are eligible to receive the Cambridge LL.M. at the end of the year upon successfully completing all LL.M. degree requirements.  Students also simultaneously receive a semester’s credit toward their HLS J.D. This means that with one additional semester back at Harvard after their Cambridge study (i.e., a total of 3.5 academic years), they will have earned both a Harvard J.D. and a Cambridge LL.M.  The HLS students are the only LL.M. students at Cambridge who are not required to have a J.D. or equivalent degree prior to enrollment.
