The Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) Program selects outstanding students who will make original contributions to the legal literature through their dissertations, and have a strong intellectual commitment to advanced legal study. The heart of the S.J.D. program is the thesis, which is comparable to a Ph.D. dissertation in the humanities or social sciences. The Environmental Law Program encourages candidates interested in writing their thesis on environmental law to apply for the S.J.D. program at WCL.
