School of Law


The Juris Doctor/Master of Public Administration program is ideal for students who want to use their law degrees in federal, state or local government agencies, as well as in not-for-profit or quasi-governmental organizations. The M.P.A. program in UB's College of Public Affairs is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration. Online M.P.A. courses provide you with flexibility and convenience.

Nine of the graduate credits, courses 600 level and above, may be applied toward the J.D. degree if the degrees are completed concurrently. If the M.P.A. is completed after the J.D., only six credits will be applied to the law degree, and 12 of the law credits may be used to satisfy M.P.A. requirements.
