Program Requirements

The dual degree will require a combined total of 128 credits, including 42 credits for the completion of the Inspection and Oversight MPA program at John Jay College and 86 credits for the completion of the JD program at CUNY Law School. However, 12 CUNY Law School credits related to criminal and investigative law will be credited towards both the JD and MPA programs. Likewise, 12 credits from the Inspection and Oversight MPA program, involving legal issues and cases, will also be credited to the CUNY Law School JD program.

Consequently, due to the 24 shared credits in the dual-degree program, the actual number of credits taken will be 104, resulting in graduation for full-time students in four years instead of five.
