    What is the best reason for embarking on the DDP?

    You’ll be joining a close, supportive community of people with more than a keen interest in law. The DDP community never ceases to amaze me, with many being deeply interested in other intellectual disciplines, music, sports, the arts, activism, technology, politics and more. This intellectual diversity is well-complemented with the common pursuit of a legal education, which leads to many very insightful interactions and learning experiences. Furthermore, this diverse yet supportive community is one where students share resources, learn from each other, and grow together in school and beyond!

    What sets DDP students apart from the rest?

    As a scholar trained in the interdisciplinary study of law, I am excited about the DDP in Law and Liberal Arts, because it gives students opportunities to explore the intersections of law and many of the academic disciplines and fields of study in liberal arts, from the social sciences to the arts, humanities and sciences. DDP students do not simply study law from the ‘lawyer’s’ perspective. They learn to open their hearts and minds to the many ways of interrogating law’s place in the social worlds that they live and will live in. DDP students are the most creative, intellectually interesting, and inspiring undergraduates I have worked with, taught and mentored.

    What makes the DDP stand out from other programmes?

    Karl Marx once said, “The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point, however, is to change it.” The DDP offers a unique opportunity for students to become both philosopher and changemaker. The dual education equips us with the knowledge to understand our world and the skills to change it. Through the diverse works of thinkers past and present, the liberal arts curriculum helps you to develop a critical mind and ask why. At the same time, law school equips you with the know-how to advance and secure justice to forge a better, fairer society.
