Academics

Our juris doctor (JD) program offers a solid foundation in legal education and a multitude of specializations applied to contemporary issues, including international conflict resolution, environmental and energy lawhealth law, and intellectual property, technology and innovation law.

You can also pursue a JD and a second master’s degree at another Pitt school—in an area such as bioethics, business, public health, and social work—or at nearby Carnegie Mellon University in less time than it would normally take to complete two consecutive degrees.

Assist the public through work with a Pitt Law clinic (health law, elder law, the environment and immigration, among others). Serve as a full-time extern on Capitol Hill or throughout Washington, D.C., as part of the Semester in D.C. Program. Intern with a federal agency, nonprofit or corporation. Participate in a national or international moot court competition.
