A Juris Doctor is an advanced degree offered by several academic institutions around the world.  This type of program is typically designed for students interested in pursuing careers as counselors, attorneys, or other legal related roles.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Full-time students may choose to begin their studies in June by completing a single Criminal Law class during a six week summer term, thereby reducing their fall course load.

In addition to reducing the fall class load, students have the opportunity to lay a solid foundation for their legal studies.

By the end of the summer, students gain an appreciation for the nuances of legal study and understand how to apply the skills learned to their fall courses. -
