The Law School offers a coordinated degree program with the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). Students in the program earn a JD and a PhD, allowing them to integrate the study of law with their doctoral studies. To be admitted to the program, students must apply to and be separately admitted to both the Law School and to GSAS. The program is open to students interested in any GSAS department. For more information, see the JD/PhD Program Description.

There is financial assistance available to certain eligible students pursuing a JD at Harvard Law School (HLS) and a PhD at the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). In recognition of the burden law school debt places on graduates who pursue academic careers, the program provides funding to selected students to cover some or all of law school tuition and fees not otherwise paid for with need-based grants.

For more information about the coordinated JD/PhD program, contact Thomas Graca, Assistant Dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs, at
