JD Concentrations

Note: Students seeking an interdisciplinary graduate certificate may not pursue a concentration in the same subject area.

Steps to declaring and earning a JD Concentration:

1. By October 1st of your last year, fill out the Concentration Declaration Form (only once per concentration). Within 2-3 weeks of submitting this, ASA will add the concentration to your record on myNortheastern. Students seeking an interdisciplinary graduate certificate may not pursue a concentration in the same subject area.

2. The faculty member in charge of the concentration(s) you declared will email you to confirm your proposed plan of study and co-op/clinic will fulfill the requirements. If you do not hear from the faculty, please follow-up with them directly. Do not resubmit the declaration form.

3. Later, once you have completed all of the coursework and co-op/clinic in order to fulfill the concentration, fill out the Concentration Certification Form (Form 2).

4. The faculty member in charge will review your certification form and email ASA confirming that you have met the requirements. If the faculty member writes to ASA stating you have not fulfilled the requirements, you will be contacted by ASA and the concentration will be removed from your academic record on myNortheastern.

If you have questions about the status of your concentration declaration or certification, please email Aileen McGrory (A.McGrory@northeastern.edu).
