Law Neurosciences IDP, School of Medicine, NEURS


As evidenced by the Stanford Program in Neuroscience and Society based in the Law School, neuroscience and law are intimately tied together at the academic and public policy level. The joint degree program provides an opportunity for students to develop expertise in both fields, and in some cases, to prepare themselves intensively for careers in areas relating to both neuroscience and law.

Course Requirements

The Law School shall approve courses from the Neurosciences program that may count toward the JD degree, and the Neurosciences program shall approve courses from the Law School that may count toward the Ph.D. degree in the Neurosciences. In either case, approval may consist of a list applicable to all joint degree students or may be tailored to each individual student’s program.
