The Doctor of Juridical Science (J.S.D.) degree is offered to applicants who have already obtained an LL.M. or comparable postgraduate law degree, and who demonstrate the potential to produce a high quality piece of legal scholarship.
J.S.D. students conduct a structured program of individual research, supervised and guided by a member of the University of Alabama School of Law faculty, leading to the completion of a scholarly dissertation. The J.S.D. program typically takes three years to complete.
Prospective J.S.D. applicants should contact the Director of International Programs, Professor Dan Joyner at firstname.lastname@example.org
