The University of Detroit Mercy and the University of Windsor collaborated to offer the first joint American/Canadian law degree program. Students complete 104 credits in three years and successful graduates receive both a Canadian J.D. and an American J.D.
The focus of the Canadian & American Dual J.D. program is on American and Canadian corporate and commercial law with sub-specialties in Intellectual Property, Taxation and International Law. This demanding program of study is designed to educate students in legal doctrines and cultures of both Canada and the United States, to help students pass the bar examinations in both countries and to prepare for a variety of careers in either or both countries.
