Many of the most important challenges confronting the legal profession lie at the intersection of science, technology, law, and policy. Emerging science and technologies, such as AI, big data, social media, genomics, and neuroscience, demand an interdisciplinary approach and visionary leadership. Students in the JD/MA in Bioethics and Science Policy program spend their three years at Duke focusing on these intersectional problems and preparing themselves for a seat at the table in these discussions for decades to come, and earn an additional degree while doing so. Duke Law School 1Ls have the opportunity to join the 2022 cohort, beginning the program in the spring foundations course. For more information on requirements and how to apply before the October 31st deadline, please contact Professor Thomas Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
