Juris Doctor (JD) Program
In addition to our traditional three-year JD program, those motivated to complete law school sooner may pursue our accelerated two-year JD degree option while simultaneously earning a certificate from our top-ranked Straus Institute in Dispute Resolution. An extended option is also available, as well as a number of joint law degree options. Learn more about Pepperdine's JD degree options.
If you are a non U.S. resident, please explore our JD application requirements for international students.
Master of Laws (LLM) Programs
As an advanced law degree, the LLM program requires an ABA-accredited JD degree (domestic applicants) or the first degree of law required for law practice or law teaching (international applicants).
If you are a non U.S. resident and interested in an LLM degree from Pepperdine Caruso Law, please explore our information for international students.
Master of Dispute Resolution (MDR) Program
Courses for the master's in dispute resolution (MDR) are also offered at the West Los Angeles campus. LLM degrees and MDR degrees can be paired with degrees from other programs across the University.
The Pepperdine Caruso School of Law offers several certificate programs that can be taken alongside a Juris Doctor degree or on their own. Through the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law's heralded Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution or the Geoffrey H. Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law, certificate programs supplement the traditional law school curriculum to equip students with the necessary skills to excel in their chosen careers.
