The MU School of Law offers a collegial environment, reinforced by a small student body and a low faculty-student ratio. The intimacy of this setting, coupled with reasonable cost, consistently high bar passage rates, a network of alumni around the globe and access to top scholars in the legal world, make MU Law one of the best values in the nation.
*These courses may be waived based on prior course work and acceptable grades.
Students enrolled in the JD/MBA Dual Degree Program will have the following 11 credits of business requirements waived upon successful completion of the JD:
2. The School of Law cannot award credit for any class taken before matriculation at the School of Law. Dual degree candidates must therefore enroll at the School of Law before taking the 6 credits of business courses to be counted toward the J.D. degree.
3. Dual degree candidates who subsequently decide to pursue only the MBA or the JD degree must complete the degree program in its entirety and subject to the same rules and requirements as students not pursuing a dual degree.
4. Law students who receive credit under the dual degree program for taking courses at the College of Business may not receive credit for taking other classes outside the School of Law. Similarly, MBA students pursuing a dual JD degree must select a business emphasis area rather than one outside the College of Business.
5. Student honors and class ranks at the School of Law will be computed on classes enrolled in as law courses. Academic Achievement Awards in the MBA Program will be computed on classes enrolled in as business classes.
6. Students are required by the Graduate School to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in all 7000-level and above Graduate School course work to be eligible to graduate with an MBA. Grades for law courses applied as electives toward the MBA degree must be at least “C” or better, but will not count in the graduate grade point average calculation. Numerical law grades are converted to letter grades by the course professor.
7. Students are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of graduate-level course work to earn an MBA. The six hours of law electives can be included in this. If students are able to waive all or most of the MBA courses eligible for waiver, they will need to take at least 24 hours of MBA courses to complete their degree.
8. The Crosby MBA Program and the School of Law reserve the right to limit participation in the program, including dismissal. Students already enrolled in one program must submit an “Application Form for Dual Enrollment in Graduate School and Professional School” form, along with applications for admission to the second program, at the earliest possible time. Students applying to both programs simultaneously will complete that form at a later date.
9. The listing of courses does not constitute a binding commitment that the courses will be offered during the student’s course of study or that the graduation requirements will remain unchanged.
10. Students in the dual-degree program are subject to the same rules and regulations that apply to all students at the School of Law and the Trulaske College of Business.
