Students in the Joint Degree Program combine their law and science/health curricula by cross-counting up to 12 law credits in their science or health program and up to 12 non-law credits in their Law School program. Of these 12, six credits may be on any subject so long as the course in the partner program is listed at the 5000-level or above. An additional six credits from the partner program may count towards the JD if they are approved by the Assistant Dean of Students (or the governing Memorandum of Agreement in the case of a joint degree), as being "substantially law-related."
