Prepare for a transnational legal career with the only three-year Dual JD program of its kind in North America.

As a student in the Dual JD program, you will experience two different legal cultures, often on the same day. The Dual JD program, founded in 1983, is a collaboration between Detroit Mercy Law and Windsor Law.

The Dual JD program is a rigorous course of study. Course content is substantial. Most required classes are taught in a comparative format that exposes students to both countries’ laws simultaneously.
