Concurrent Juris Doctor/Master of Taxation

Through our partnership with the School of Law, we offer the concurrent Juris Doctor/Master of Taxation program, which allows students to take courses that provide credit for both degrees. By pursuing the degrees concurrently, students complete the 30-hour Master of Taxation (MTax) and the 90-hour Juris Doctor (JD) with 108 hours of coursework. Six hours of the MTax degree are counted toward the JD degree, and six hours of the JD degree are used to complete the MTax degree. Students will choose two cross-listed law courses as taxation electives, take ACCY 611 (cross-listed law course) as an accountancy elective, and choose one three-hour law course to be counted as a general elective.

To participate in the concurrent degree program, students must be admitted by both the School of Law and the Graduate School/Patterson School of Accountancy. Students must enroll in all 31 hours of required first-year law courses in one academic year.
