The JD with Advanced Standing Program allows students to receive up to 30 hours of credit towards their JD for prior legal studies in another country. If the maximum amount of credit is applied towards the JD at FIU Law, students may complete their JD in approximately two years of full-time study. Students with advanced standing may also be admitted to the evening/part-time program, allowing them to complete their studies in as little as three years. Students may also receive credit towards the JD for coursework completing as part of a graduate degree in law, such as a LL.M., here in the United States at an ABA accredited law school. In any event, students must complete at least 59 credits in residence at FIU for an award of the JD. -

Full-time students may choose to begin their studies in June by completing a single Criminal Law class during a six week summer term, thereby reducing their fall course load. Classes are offered at convenient times for those working during the summer. If you're new to the region, summer is the perfect time to settle into life in the Emerald City! In addition to reducing the fall class load, students have the opportunity to lay a solid foundation for their legal studies. During the Criminal Law class, students work collaboratively to develop skills to read and interpret legal text, synthesize rules and policy, and engage in effective legal analysis. By the end of the summer, students gain an appreciation for the nuances of legal study and understand how to apply the skills learned to their fall courses. -

Mastering legal doctrine is just the beginning of a proper legal education. Lawyers play countless roles in our society—as advocates, as advisors, as leaders in their own right. They practice law, work in business and government, put their degrees to use in science, education, and policymaking, and serve their communities in many other ways. Knowledge of the law, both its content and how to argue about it, remains critical in all these roles. But it is not enough, and a lawyer must also understand the needs of the people he or she serves and the consequences for them of different legal positions. And because those needs cross disciplinary boundaries, Stanford Law—true to Stanford University’s heritage of learning without limits— offers the opportunity for a truly interdisciplinary, multidimensional legal education. -

Family law governs the rights and duties of people in close and caring relationships with each other. Our diverse society, which includes people with vastly different political and religious beliefs, presents an ever-changing legal landscape in which definitions of marriage, family and parenthood are in flux, yet ordinary people must make their way and establish, maintain or sever important relationships as their circumstances require. Family law practice provides lawyers with opportunities to help clients through some of life’s most important and difficult situations. Today, family law encompasses much more than only divorce, and includes topics such as adoption, paternity, marriage, the parent-child relationship, child maltreatment, and domestic violence. -

Three of the world’s most high-impact fields — law, medicine, and biosciences — come together in Stanford Law’s JD/MD program. Stanford is one of just a handful of universities with top-ranked schools of both law and medicine as well as a robust program in biosciences. A university-wide tradition of encouraging and nurturing innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration — along with a location in Silicon Valley, with its thriving biotech and medtech industries — makes Stanford a particularly welcoming home for work that merges these three dynamic disciplines. -
