As an undergraduate student majoring in Economics, Mathematics, Political Science, Statistics, or a related field, we want you to know about a unique opportunity at Vanderbilt University.
Vanderbilt Law School’s Ph.D. Program in Law and Economics is a dual-degree program in which students pursue a J.D. and a Ph.D. concurrently in a fully-integrated curriculum combining economic theory and methodology with the study of law. The program is designed so that students complete both degrees in just six years.
Please join our Zoom informational session with our Director of Graduate Studies, current students, and alumni THIS EVENING, Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at 6 PM – 7 PM CDT: https://vanderbilt.zoom.us/j/93550992323
Admitted students receive full tuition funding for both degrees and a competitive stipend package.
Program faculty guide students through an innovative law and economics curriculum where students pursue policy-relevant research within a wide range of fields, such as behavioral law and economics, labor markets and human resources, and risk and environmental regulation.
Program graduates have obtained prestigious judicial clerkships, faculty positions in law schools and economics departments, and jobs in government, consulting, and legal practice.
The Ph.D. Program is currently accepting applications for Fall 2023.
If you have not taken the LSAT, you may be eligible to apply with GRE scores only. Visit the Ph.D. Program Prospective Students page to learn more about our application process. Applications received by January 15, 2023 will receive priority consideration.
