Canadian and American Dual JD Program
The Canadian and American Dual JD Program is a demanding program of study designed to: educate students to understand the legal doctrines and cultures of both Canada and the United States; help students successfully pass the bar examinations in either country; enable its graduates to practice law in a manner consonant with the highest standards of competence, professional ethics, and concerns for justice as exemplified by the traditions of the legal profession in both countries.
The program requires a student to successfully complete 60 credit hours of course work at the University of Detroit Mercy and 44 credit hours of course work at the University of Windsor. Most mandatory courses require the student to study both U.S. and Canadian law relevant to the subject area.
This program is designed to enable a student to obtain an American Bar Association-approved Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) Degree from the University of Detroit Mercy and the nationally recognized Juris Doctor (J.B.) Degree from the University of Windsor within three calendar years.
