Dual J.D./Ph.D. in Law and History
The Program in Race, Law & History recognizes that students take various routes to becoming scholars in law and history. Among our graduates are those who elected legal history courses during their J.D. studies, others who designated law as their cognate field during Ph.D. study, and still others who returned to academia after professional lives in legal practice and the teaching of history.
We also have advised students whose ambitions were always framed in terms of receiving a J.D. and Ph.D. during a single course of study. At the University of Michigan, such students have successfully crafted programs tailored to their intellectual interests, alternating their studies between the Law School and the Rackham Graduate School with the advice of faculty and administrators.
Please contact the Program faculty to discuss your interests in this and other routes to a career in law and history.
