HLS-University of Cambridge Joint Degree Program: Applications due January 8

A reminder that applications for the HLS-University of Cambridge Joint J.D.-LL.M. Degree Program are due to International Legal Studies by Monday, January 8.  (HLS students apply in the spring of their 2L year for matriculation in the fall.)

Our web pages (see link above) include detailed information about this program, in which HLS students spend their 3L year in the UK and one additional semester at HLS, earning a Cambridge LL.M. and a Harvard J.D. in 3.5 years.

Information Session: Study Abroad


The Semester Abroad program is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a foreign legal culture and to receive a semester of ungraded credit towards the Harvard J.D. degree for study at a law school overseas. 2L and 3L students can apply to study at one of our exchange partner schools, or for an independent semester abroad at another accredited law school.

The HLS-University of Cambridge Joint Degree program is an incredible opportunity to spend a year at one of the world’s oldest and most distinguished universities. Students who successfully complete program requirements earn a Harvard J.D. and a Cambridge LL.M. in a total of three-and-a-half years.

Come learn more about these programs from HLS students who have studied abroad. Lunch will be served.
