Juris Doctor/Master of Marine Policy (Delaware)
A joint effort between Widener Law and the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, the Juris Doctor/Master of Marine Policy (JD/MMP) dual degree offers you the opportunity to combine legal training with detailed knowledge of oceanic and coastal environments.

Admission
Students interested in the JD/MMP dual-degree must meet the admissions requirements for both Widener Law School and the School of Marine Science and Policy at the University of Delaware. Most students apply first to the School of Law and then to the School of Marine Science and Policy during the third or fourth semester of the JD program, but a student in the second or third semester at the Graduate College of Marine Studies may also enter the program by seeking admission to the School of Law.

Degree Requirements
In order to earn the JD/MMP, you must complete a curriculum of required credit hours of both Law School courses and marine studies courses. Note, however, that some of the Law School credits will be accepted as elective credits towards the Master of Marine Policy degree and that some of the Graduate College of Marine Studies credits will be accepted as elective credits towards the Juris Doctor. You must also complete a thesis on a law and marine policy issue.
