dual degree programs
« on: January 21, 2009, 12:08:21 PM »
Anyone out there doing a JD/PhD program? I'm interested in academia and possibly government consulting down the road, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any particular program, especially ones that combined law and poli sci. Is the workload ok, is there any reason to avoid this, any thoughts would be appreciated

edit: I would not, unfortunately, be attending HYS...I'm aiming at the mid to lower T14. Does this hurt my chances for an academic career? I'm planning to spend a good amount of time teaching outside the States, but I'd still like to come back here and get a job at a good university. I guess the question is how important is your PhD's institution "name" relative to things like publications, teaching positions etc?
