The JD/MS is a specialized course of study in which a student actively pursues both a Master of Science (MS) in Finance (SFIN) and a Juris Doctorate (JD) with the LSU Law Center. Admission into the program is contingent upon acceptance into both the regular MS program and the LSU Law Center. Curricular requirements for both graduate degrees are the same as their respective individual programs. The nature of the JD/MS program allows students to share several hours of coursework between the two programs.


Students interested are encouraged to visit the individual program site.

LSU and the Paul M. Hebert Law Center offer several dual degree programs, allowing a student to earn both the JD/DCL and a master’s degree.

Students enrolling in the dual degree programs must be admitted separately to the LSU Graduate School and the Law Center. Students should consult with the admissions office of each institution prior to enrollment.

Each program has specific requirements, which can be found by visiting the website listed above.

Students successfully completing the program listed above will receive two degrees, a JD/DCL awarded by LSU’s Hebert Law Center and a master’s degree awarded by LSU.

Students wishing to pursue dual degrees must complete and submit the “Request for Dual Degree” form.
