Students in the Canadian & American Dual J.D. Program must meet the credit and degree requirements of both universities. 1L Dual J.D. students may not enroll in elective coursework at either university during the regular school year, but may enroll in elective courses at Detroit Mercy Law in the 1L Intersession/Summer term, subject to eligibility requirements and credit hour limits. Beginning in second year, Dual J.D. students may enroll in elective courses at both Detroit Mercy Law and Windsor Law.
All students must review their degree progressions to ensure that they are on track to meet their degree and credit requirements. Students are encouraged to make appointments with Dual J.D. administration for course counseling and degree audit reviews.
