Specialization in Law & Philosophy

Subject to approval by the Graduate Advisor in Philosophy, the Faculty Director of the Law & Philosophy Program, and advance consultation with the law school Registrar, philosophy graduate students may complete a specialization in Law & Philosophy. Students who complete four law school courses (only one of which may be the legal theory workshop) each for a grade of B or higher, and who write a substantial research paper on law and philosophy will receive a notation on their departmental transcripts that they have completed the specialization in law and philosophy.

Graduate students interested in completing the specialization should review the law school’s offerings and email Law & Philosophy with a copy to Doug Myers about getting permission to enroll.

Find more information about the specialization in Law & Philosophy on the law school website.
