J.S.D. in International Water Resources Law
A J.S.D., or Doctor of Juridical Science is, in effect, legal education’s counterpart to the Ph.D. Those who have already earned an LL.M. and wish to do intensive, in-depth work in the law of international freshwater resources, normally over a period of several years, should apply for the J.S.D.
To qualify for the J.S.D. degree in International Water Resources Law, the student must:
- Earn a minimum of eight (8) semester hours of credit over a course of a two-semester residency
- A cumulative grade point average of not less than 3.0 (on a 4.3 point scale).
- Successfully defend their Dissertation.
The courses completed during the residency will be determined by the Dissertation Supervisor in consultation with the student.
