The Juris Doctor/Master of Information Science program allows students who are interested in a career in law librarianship to simultaneously pursue a Juris Doctor degree and a Master of Information Science degree. This joint degree option is available to both day- and evening-program law students. The programs require 24 semester hours of required and elective courses in the MIS program and 88 semester hours of required and elective courses in the JD program. The program is structured to allow students to earn both degrees in less time than is required to earn each degree separately. Students interested in either of these programs must apply to both schools separately.
The program is designed to allow students to develop a deep technological understanding of the legal issues in the information and computer technology industry and to learn about technology requirements in a law practice.
