New York's University at Buffalo has announced the launch of a new Doctor of Juridical Science (JSD) program.
The new program is set to help build the school's reputation in research.
The JSD will include one year in residence, and then approximately two years to work on a dissertation. The program will include a minimum of 27 academic credits. The main required course is a colloquium in "Advanced Law and Society Research;" beyond that students will be able to tailor their studies to their interests, through independent study and concentration electives.
In the dissertation, JSD students "will produce an original, innovative piece of scholarship that makes a contribution to our understanding of law," according to the program's webpage.
The University of Buffalo also offers an LL.M. program.
