What Are the Benefits of Taking a Juris Doctor?

Juris Doctor programs take a scientific approach to law, teaching logic and adversarial analysis. Promoting a practical approach to legal study, Doctor of Law programs prepare students for a career as a lawyer, attorney, barrister, counselor or other legal professional. JD programs also prepare students to succeed in professional law exams (sometimes called the "Bar" exam), required to practice in most countries. Passing the legal professional examination is the gateway to becoming a solicitor, lawyer, attorney or legal counsel.

What Are the Requirements for a Juris Doctor?

The monetary costs of completing a Juris Doctor degree program can vary widely from country to country, and between universities. The amount of time it takes an individual to complete their Doctor of Law program may also affect the total price of the degree.

Juris Doctor and Doctor of Law programs are offered at universities and academic institutions around the world, in the United States, Japan, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Italy, South Africa and more.
