Law students in class lecture


From Policy to Practice

Students may simultaneously complete the requirements for a Juris Doctor degree from Western New England University School of Law and a Master's degree in Regional Planning from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in four academic years. The curriculum integrates studies of the physical, environmental, social, cultural, economic, legal, and political facets of planning at all scales: urban, suburban, and rural.

Those interested in this program must apply to each program separately. Students should apply to the JD program first and, during their first year of law school, apply to the MRP program.
