The law faculty has adopted the principle that law students should be offered exposure to disciplines relevant to solving emerging social problems, particularly those of an urban nature. The goal in interdisciplinary education is, at the very least, to familiarize law students with social science vocabularies and nonlegalistic methods of problem solving. The School of Law-Newark, therefore, permits students to enroll for courses given by other Rutgers graduate faculties, such as business, labor and management, economics, and political science. Students may earn dual law degrees with other academic disciplines within the university, subject to course approval. They may receive up to 6 credits toward a law degree for interdisciplinary work. An additional 3 credits may be earned in most dual-degree programs and an additional 6 credits may be earned in certain designated joint-degree programs. A student may not receive credit for courses taken prior to admission to the law school.
