Drake Law School offers various law degree programs, including:

  • Juris Doctor (JD) For students with a four-year bachelor's degree who wish to practice law in any state.
  • Master of Jurisprudence (MJ) For students with a four-year bachelor's degree who do not wish to practice law, but rather want a better understanding of the law to advance their career. A JD degree is not required for admission to this program.
  • Master of Laws (LLM) For students who hold a JD degree or equivalent and wish to pursue an advanced curriculum to expand their practice. For international students, an LLM may allow them to sit for the bar exam in some states and obtain a license to practice law in the U.S.
