The Public Policy and Juris Doctor Dual Degree will provide you with a deep understanding of how legal and policy issues relate and will equip you with the critical skills and knowledge required to tackle a broad range of complex public policy challenges and make a difference in the contemporary world of law and public policy.
You will start the dual degree program with your first year at the UNH School of Law followed by one year at the Carsey School earning your Master in Public Policy.
