Washington University School of Law
Students who have already earned an LLM degree may enroll in our research degree (JSD) program and concentrate on any field of law in which our faculty can provide appropriate guidance for independent work. Students do not follow a general program; rather, a faculty advisor tailors minimal course requirements according to the student’s needs. This program emphasizes mature, original research, and writing. A dissertation committee, chaired by a law school faculty member, is appointed for each candidate.
