Information and Law

The College of Law and School of Information joint graduate pathway in law and information, J.D./M.S.I., permits the completion of both degrees concurrently. Current law students must meet with and submit all documents for admission to the College of Law joint graduate pathway coordinator before July 1 following their first year or second year of law school. The College of Law joint graduate pathway coordinator will then submit their completed packet to the College of Law and the School of Information for approval. Any student who has completed M.S.I. coursework prior to matriculating to the College of Law or who wishes to apply for the joint graduate pathway after beginning their third year of law school must obtain prior written approval from the College of Law before applying for the joint graduate pathway.

Applicants to the M.S.I. program must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university and an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0 or better. Applicants should contact the School of Information to obtain specific information on the necessary GRE requirement. The School of Information will waive the GRE requirement for current College of Law students.
