Program description

Juris Doctor and Master of Social Work (J.D. & M.S.W.)

The dual degree program is designed to provide its graduates with two degrees--the Juris Doctor and the Master of Social Work--attesting to competency in both law and social work. It is expected that this program will bring together persons sensitive to both the legal and human elements in social and personal dysfunctions.

This program is designed to bring together two fields that call for knowledge and skills directed toward resolving human problems. This effort to integrate education in law and social work will draw on the contributions each can make to practice in both fields. A student who is accepted into the dual degree program will be permitted to count one semester's work in the law school toward meeting the graduation requirements in the School of Social Work at VCU, and one semester's work in the VCU School of Social Work toward meeting the graduation requirements of the law school. This will enable participants in the dual degree program to complete the requirements for the J.D. and the M.S.W. in four years. Applicants for this program are required to meet admission standards of both the law school and the VCU School of Social Work.
