JD/MBA Programming

Lawyers provide legal services that require an understanding of business principles, and moreover, need business skills to start and manage law practices. UC Law SF offers a rich array of business courses to all JD candidates as part of the regular law school curriculum. However, some students may wish to obtain an MBA in addition to the JD.

UC Law SF has formal concurrent degree agreements with three business schools: UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, UC Davis Graduate School of Management, and Presidio Graduate School.
