Dual Degrees

How to Apply

New students applying to the dual degree programs apply only to the Law School, which means taking the LSAT and submitting Suffolk Law’s online application through LSAC.org. Dual degree applicants should indicate their desire to apply to the dual degree program and include a second essay that specifically mentions the dual degree. In many cases, you will not need to take the GMAT or GRE. However, the Graduate Admission Office may request additional standardized testing for applicants in the MSIE and MSF programs. For information about submitting your application to Suffolk Law School, visit How to Apply.
