Queen’s University’s Faculty of Law and Department of Economics have partnered to offer a combined program that allows students to obtain both a JD and an MA degree in three years. The program provides highly-focused interdisciplinary training for students interested in the many areas where law and economic analysis intersect, for example international trade law and policy, corporate law and policy, competition law and policy, environmental and resource management and tax law and policy. Combined MA/JD students will receive excellent training and gain a strong comparative advantage to pursue careers in specialized legal work that requires knowledge of economic theory and social science methods, high-level policy work and academia.
Students are registered as a graduate student with the School of Graduate Studies and Research in the first year of the combined MA(Economics) / JD program, and in the JD program for the latter three years.
Combined program details, including admission and program requirements are published in the Combined MA (Economics)/JD Program chapter of the Academic Calendar.
