Certificate Programs in Law and Public Policy with the Pardee RAND Graduate School

Southwestern, in partnership with the Pardee RAND Graduate School , offers two exciting law and public policy certificate programs to provide law students and public policy Ph.D. students the opportunity to complement their degree programs with a unique understanding of the interplay between the law and public policy.

Qualified Southwestern students can now take courses in public policy at Pardee RAND, leading to a "Certificate in Public Policy," and qualified students at Pardee RAND can take courses at Southwestern, leading to a "Certificate in Legal Studies." These are not joint degree programs; instead, they are intended to provide participating students with a basic knowledge of law and public policy and an understanding of the tools and frameworks relevant to each field.

Southwestern and the Keck Graduate Institute (KGI), a member of the Claremont Colleges, have established an exciting new Bioscience Industry Law and Practice certificate program to provide law students and Master of Bioscience (MBS) students with a unique understanding of the interplay between law and the fast-growing bioscience industry.

Through this certificate program, qualified Southwestern students with an interest in intellectual property, for example, can now take courses at KGI in the area of technology management, entrepreneurship, and bioscience related industry dynamics - important given the critical role of IP in these industries. Conversely, qualified KGI students interested in bioscience industry dynamics can take courses at Southwestern in intellectual property law, patent and trademark law, and regulatory law as it applies to health care and the bioscience industry.
