The International Dual Degree Programs allow a select number of students to obtain a JD from American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) in Washington, D.C. and a JD-equivalent or LL.M. degree from Australia, Canada, France, Italy, or Spain. This experience takes studying abroad to a new level. Law students are now able to go beyond area studies in international or transnational law and become actual transnational lawyers.
Our International JD Dual Degree programs are open to AUWCL students only and you must have completed at least one semester of law school at AUWCL before applying. Applications are due January 31 each year. It is recommended students apply during January of their first year of law school. Students may apply during January of their second year, but placements may be limited.
