Stetson University

Dual and Joint Degree Programs

Stetson University College of Law provides the following programs for students to pursue two degrees simultaneously:


Beginning in spring 2015, Stetson University College of Law will offer a J.D./LL.M. in Advocacy joint-degree program, allowing qualified students the opportunity to earn both a J.D. degree and an LL.M. degree in advocacy from Stetson in as little as three years.

Students in Stetson University’s new program will save a semester of full-time study by applying up to 12 hours of prescribed J.D. courses towards the LL.M. degree, allowing them to complete the LL.M. degree in less than six months by taking an additional 12 hours of LL.M. coursework. Students will be able to take all 12 credits in one semester, or may opt to complete the program on a part-time basis, provided that a student must complete the LL.M. program (12 credits) in no more than 2 years.

To learn more about the new joint-degree program, visit J.D./LL.M. in Advocacy or contact the Office of Admissions and Student Financial Planning at 727-562-7802 or For more information about advocacy at Stetson University College of Law, visit
