The HLS-University of Cambridge J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree Program enables Harvard J.D. students to earn a Cambridge LL.M. and a Harvard J.D. in a total of 3.5 years. Up to six Harvard 2Ls are selected annually to spend their 3L year in the UK reading for the Cambridge LL.M. The admissions process begins with an application through HLS in January of the candidate’s 2L year and ends with a decision by Cambridge in early spring for matriculation at Cambridge the following fall.

Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are due to International Legal Studies by Wednesday, January 9, 2019. Detailed information on the program and the application process is available at, and students can also contact International Legal Studies at with any questions.
