University of Detroit Mercy School of Law

Students in the Canadian & American Dual JD Program earn two law degrees in three years by comparative and interactive study each year on the campus of both the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and the University of Windsor Faculty of Law.

This program gives students a special opportunity to immerse themselves in two different legal cultures and to practice law in a globalized world. Today, the practice of law increasingly crosses borders and this unique program allows you to earn both an American JD and a Canadian JD in the same three years it takes most law students to receive one degree.

Course of Study

The Dual JD Program is a rigorous program designed to immerse students in two legal cultures. Because of our proximity to the International Border between the US and Canada, and the fact that our campuses are approximately 20 minutes apart (including border crossing), we are able to offer an integrated approach allowing students to learn both Canadian and US law at the same time.
