The close connections between contemporary legal theory and areas of philosophy such as moral, social and political philosophy indicate a real need for joint study in these two disciplines. To provide opportunities for such scholarship, the Law School and the Department of Philosophy at Duke University offer joint degree programs that combine a J.D. and an M.A. There is a terminal J.D./M.A. program, and a program that combines the J.D./M.A. with a Ph.D. in philosophy. Duke University has a distinguished Law School, with a faculty that has special interest in international law and intellectual property law as well as constitutional interpretation. The Duke Department of Philosophy has a faculty with expertise in the philosophy of law, political philosophy, science policy studies, bioethics, normative ethics and metaethics, and moral psychology. In addition, students in the joint degree programs at Duke have the opportunity to take courses in the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
