Dual Enrollment for Current Consortium Partner University Students
Most candidates for the Accelerated JD Program are individuals who already have earned their first degree in law. However, for Consortium Partner Universities, NSU Law offers a limited number of opportunities for its current students to enroll at NSU Law while still studying at their home institution. The Dual-Enrollment option requires the acceptance by Consortium Partner Universities of NSU Law JD credits to help students simultaneously complete their law studies.
A Consortium Partner University that seeks to offer the dual-enrollment option will coordinate with NSU Law to identify the particular course of study that will assure that the dual-enrolled student can fulfill all graduation and licensure obligations in both jurisdictions. Schools need not offer the dual-enrollment option to participate in the Consortium.
Triple Degree Option
Students who would like to take advantage of a triple degree option may undertake additional coursework to earn the degree of Master of Science in Law and Policy. These students participate in a summer session between their first and second year at NSU Law. Students choose from a core of courses focusing on transnational regulation, international human rights, cross-border finance, international trade, conflict of laws, immigration, or natural resource law. Students may substitute other NSU Law summer immersion courses upon academic approval. Students who complete the second summer session are then eligible to continue to complete additional course work and a master's thesis.
Scholarships for Consortium Partner University Graduates and Students
In recognition of the importance of the Consortium to the advancement of global legal education, NSU Law provides an additional annual scholarship of $3,000 to students who either received their first law degree at a Consortium Partner University or who currently are enrolled in a first degree law program at a Consortium Partner University. This scholarship is in addition to any other award received by the student.
Annual tuition and fees for the Accelerated JD Program are equal to the current academic year tuition charged by NSU Law. Both merit scholarships and tuition adjustments are available to all applicants.
