With JD degrees giving a little less value to investment ratio, after the legal sector shrunk and fails to grow as of late, law schools across the nation are looking for ways to stay competitive, add more value, and add pizzazz to the boring old J.D. that any old law school can offer. Some offer a J.D. in two years, others combine degrees with undergrad programs. Eastern Michigan University is offering four joint degrees that combine with their master’s degrees. The degrees offered include, as Mlive reported:

J.D./master’s degree in human resource and organizational development


J.D./master’s degree in educational leadership

J.D./master’s degree in health administration

J.D./master’s degree in business administration

As the joint venture was signed into effect by EMU President Susan Martin and Cooley Law President Don LeDuc, students can join the programs as soon as this year.

Though the degrees will be issued each from its independence institution, six masters credits can be transferred to the Cooley Degree, and visa versa.

The purpose of the program is to offer a variety of “highly relevant career paths for the university students,” said Martin.

“In addition to obtaining the analytical, technical and verbal skills associated with earning a law degree, students will learn specific job skills in one of four fields that need accomplished professionals,” Martin said. “This partnership reflects Eastern’s commitment to aligning its academic programs with student needs and today’s evolving workplace.”
