What is the J.D. /MACC program?
Knowing the tax effects of structuring a legal transaction can be a huge benefit for your client, and having both a J.D. and a Master of Accountancy can give you an incredible advantage at just about any negotiating table. Whether your interests lie in estate planning, transactional law or helping shape public or tax policy, combining legal training with advanced accounting skills will sharpen your ability to analyze information, identify problems, provide value-added solutions and communicate them in a compelling manner.
With two great networks to connect with for career opportunities and the ability to differentiate yourself in a competitive job market, the J.D./MACC is a logical choice for those wanting to combine a career in law and accountancy.
When to apply: The combination degree application process can be completed prior to enrolling in your first year of law school or during your 2L year. Separate applications are required for each program. The School of Law’s priority deadline for complete applications is March 1, but students can apply through early summer.
