Juris Doctor Law

As mentioned earlier, the Juris Doctor is a degree that prepares the recipient to enter the profession just like the M.D. degree in the medical profession. While the Juris Doctor is the only degree necessary to become a professor of law or to obtain a license to practice law, it is not a “research degree”.

The United States Department of Education and the National Science Foundation do not recognize the Juris Doctor or other professional doctorates among the degrees that are equivalent to research doctorates. Hence a Juris Doctor program requires no thesis, although a lengthy writing project is sometimes required. As a professional training, it provides sufficient training for entry into practice as no apprenticeship is necessary to sit for the bar examination.
