School of Law

JD/MSW Dual-Degree Program

Representing and advocating for children, families, women and the elderly is enhanced with an understanding of the psychological and social dynamics that characterize these populations. Offered jointly with the Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work, this four-year full-time program gives practicing lawyers a broader understanding of the human concerns in legal interventions.

The Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree is focused on clinical social work. M.S.W. students may select options in health and school social work. Field placements are also available in mental health, child and family, geriatric and chemical dependency settings.

Applicants for the dual J.D./M.S.W. degree should apply separately for admission to both the School of Social Work and to the School of Law, indicating their intent to pursue a dual degree.
