The J.D./LL.M. degree program permits students who are still completing their J.D. degree at Georgetown Law Center to take courses that will count both toward the J.D. degree and also toward an LL.M. degree. The Law Center currently offers J.D./LL.M. degree programs in five fields of study -- Environmental Law, Global Health Law,  International Business & Economic Law, National Security Law, and Taxation.
