Academics & Programs
A Unique Balance of Practice and Theory
The University of Mississippi School of Law provides a strong foundation in substantive law, legal reasoning and legal writing. Its academic program is designed to foster an understanding of the development of law, legal institutions and ethical issues, and to afford opportunities for research and writing, participation in small group seminars and simulation experiences.
We offer a Juris Doctor, a Juris Doctor/Master of Taxation and a Juris Doctor/Master of Accountancy, as well as certificate programs in business law, criminal law and remote sensing, air and space law. We also offer experiential learning opportunities through our various centers and clinics and other outlets where students can develop practical, real-world lawyering skills. Please see below for more information on these programs.
