Foreign Dual Degree Programs
In 1994, Columbia was the first U.S. law school to establish a double-degree program providing its participants with both a U.S. Juris Doctor and a foreign law degree, in this instance the French Maîtrise en Droit. Columbia was also the first school to create a three-year J.D./LL.M. program. The Double-Degree programs are the flagship of our study abroad programs — they build upon the Law School's tradition of innovation, and offer unparalleled, substantive, and unique opportunities for the study of international and comparative law.
