Duke to Launch New JD/LLMLE Program in Fall 2013

New program lets students get two degrees in three years; focus on entrepreneurship

Duke University Law School announced today that it will launch a new dual-degree JD/LLME ("LLM in Law and Entrepreneurship") starting in Fall 2013.

The one-year LLMLE was launched in 2010. The dual-degree program will let students graduate with both a JD and LLMLE in only three years, due to summer coursework fit in prior to their first year of law school, and during the summer after the first academic year of the JD.

According to the law school, the new program "combines a rigorous JD curriculum with business and entrepreneurship courses as well as participation in the Start-Up Ventures Clinic, through which students provide legal counsel to start-ups; an entrepreneurship 'boot camp' that models the experience of launching a new company; and an integrated externship in a start-up venture."

The program is designed "to prepare lawyers for careers as advisors to and leaders of entrepreneurial businesses and innovative ventures."
