Candidates for the joint program will need to meet the separate admission requirements of the law school and the master’s program in Indigenous Studies. Admission into one school will create no presumption favoring admission into the other. To be admitted into the joint program, an applicant must be separately admitted to both programs and then must request to proceed in the joint program. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is the required entrance examination for the School of Law application, and the GRE is the required entrance examination for the Indigenous Studies application.

Per American Bar Association policy, credit for the J.D. degree shall only be given for course work taken after the student has matriculated in the law school. The law school shall not grant credit toward the J.D. degree for work taken in a pre-admission program. For this reason, students should start the law program first.  

Students may apply to both degree programs simultaneously, but they are not required to do so. For students who are admitted into the School of Law first, they should seek admission into the master’s program as soon as possible and must be admitted into that program no later than the end of the spring semester of their second year of law study, but earlier application is recommended. For students who are admitted to the master’s program first, they should seek admission into the School of Law as soon as possible and must be admitted into the law school no later than the end of their second semester of graduate study.

NOTE: Some of the Law and ISP courses are cross-listed, meaning they have a LAW course number and an ISP course number. Only courses taken under the LAW course number will count toward law school credits. This is an important point, as the manner in which you enroll in classes can affect a timely completion of the dual program, especially if ISP is started first.
