    The Juris Doctor degree (J.D. or JD), also known as Doctor of Law or Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D., JD, D.Jur., or DJur), is a graduate-entry professional degree in law and one of several Doctor of Law degrees. Although a graduate degree, the J.D. is the standard degree obtained to practice law in the United States because there is no 'law degree' at the undergraduate level.

    User Law School Prof has added Juris Doctorem as an alternative name for the J.D., with the claim in the edit summary that this is used at Georgetown University. A Google site search on for the text "juris doctorem" returns no results, while there is plenty of material there using "Juris Doctor". It should also be noted that Juris Doctorem is the Latin accusative of Juris Doctor, which is therefore used on some degree parchments - this is not a separate title from Juris Doctor, merely the form Juris Doctor takes when it is the subject of a sentence in Latin. I suspect this is the cause of Law School Prof's confusion. My revert on this edit was re-reverted without explanation; to avoid edit-warring I have therefore tagged it as needing a citation and opened this discussion.

    So Buzzfeed (which despite the stupid name is now a legit and reasonably reliable news organ) has this article about something called the Executive Juris Doctor degree I don't know if it's important enough to include in this already dense and long article, so I didn't, but on the other hand probably some none-zero number of people are going to search on "Executive Juris Doctor" which is a redirect to "Juris Doctor#Executive Juris Doctor", which section doesn't exist, so they are just dumped at the top of this article, which contains no info at on Executive Juris Doctor. So maybe we ought to ad a section something like this, probably in the "Types and characteristics" subsection: 1. 1.1. ====Executive Juris Doctor==== 1.2. Some for-profit schools in the United States offer a legal education program resulting in an Executive Juris Doctor(EJD) degree. Despite the similarity in name to Juris Doctor (which is sometimes the source of confusion), this degree is not generally recognized in...

    Here is a link for the ABA law school approval standards, I think some of the stuff in this article might misrepresent them. . Peyna11:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC) Four factual errors: The AAALS does not requires a bachelor's degree for admission to law school.There are many good, legitimate universities that are not regionally accredited; Rockefeller University is perhaps the best example.There are no law schools that require a JSD/SJD for tenure.A JSD/SJD is not even remotely comparable to a British higher doctorate.

    This entire article focuses way too much on boring, petty technicalities and not enough on what people actually doto get a Juris Doctor (that is, the requirements to earn the degree). For example, there is no mention that the first year curriculum is relatively standardized (semester-long courses in Contracts, Torts, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, and Property and a year-long course in Lawyering Skills/Legal Research & Writing), or that there is a upper-division writing requirement, or that Professional Responsibility is required, etc. There is too much focus on procedure over substance. I would think that most people interested in reading about the Juris Doctor would want to know WHAT kind of academic coursework it actually represents. Also, length of time to get the degree is discussed in two separate places in the article, which makes no sense. That needs to be consolidated. Do we have consensus that these aspects need to be fixed? --Coolcaesar08:01, 5 August 2006 (UTC) 1. I c...

    I am left unconvinced as to the status of the JD. I understand the arguments with respect to the status of the JD to be as follows (where ' indicates the counterargument, as I understand it): 1. The JD is a (terminal) doctoral degree because it is the highest degree in its field. 1'. Other degrees are higher than the JD inasmuch as the JD is a prerequisite for those degrees. 2. The JD is a doctoral degree because it enables the recipient to conduct research. 2'. Preparing one to conduct research does not qualify a degree as "doctoral" (i.e. anyone who can read can conduct research). Rather, doctoral degrees typically prepare one to generate *new and significant* knowledge to a field. 3. The JD is a (professional) doctoral degree because it is the highest degree required for the practice of law. 3'. It is also the lowest degree required for the practice of law because it is the only degree required for the practice of law. 4. The JD is a doctoral degree because the ABA says it is a d...

    For purposes of this article, what exactly is "new knowledge"? I have seen a distinction made at various times between research by a Ph.D. that generates "new knowledge" and research by a J.D. in connection with the law, which presumably somehow does not generate "new knowledge." What exactly is the distinction? Any thoughts, anyone? Yours, Famspear20:11, 10 August 2006 (UTC) Post-script: I want to point out that my query above is a trick question. Let me give an example with a typical set of real life legal questions that are timely as subjects of legal research (names and dates changed for confidentiality, of course). 1. 1.1. Hypothetical #1: XYZ Corporation was created under the laws of the State of Texas, operating entirely inside the State of Texas. XYZ Corporation uses December 31st as its year end for all federal and state tax purposes. Under Texas law, a corporation's Texas corporate franchise tax report for, say, the accounting year 2002 (which would be report year 2003) is...

    Since there seems to be a number of people on both sides of the argument regarding whether the JD is a doctorate; I propose we submit this issue to an RfC. The reason being, that because any of the arguments being advanced for/against the JD apply equally to all professional doctorates (JD/MD/DDS, etc., see Doctorate for a complete list). This resolution issue has the potential to impact 20+ articles if not more, so we really need to bring in other people to the discussion and try to arrive at some consensus. Peyna17:12, 13 August 2006 (UTC) 1. RfC created: Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Maths, science, and technology#Miscellaneous. Peyna17:18, 13 August 2006 (UTC) Via RfC: 1. Occasionally, traditional degrees are replaced by newer ones. During the 1960s, for example, most American law schools replaced the Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) with the Juris Doctor (J.D.), even though the actual requirements for the law degree remained substantially the same. "Degree, Academic", The Columbia Enc... has repeatedly reintroduced wording to the effect that the J.D. is a doctoral-level degree. Peyna requested an RfC. The consensus appeared to be that evidence support the contention that the J.D. is not a doctoral-level degree. invoked the U.S. Department of Education and reintroduced the doctoral-level wording. I have provided the link to and quotation from the U.S. DOE that unequivocally states that the J.D. is *not* a doctoral-level degree and, in fact, may not even be considered a graduate level degree. I incorporated this citation and made appropriate changes to the article. has *again* introduced the doctoral-level wording. I'd appreciate others commenting on what appears to me to be a complete disregard for NPOV. Wikiant14:57, 21 August 2006 (UTC) The DOE does not support the contention that the JD is not a doctoral-level degree. The DOE includes the JD with other first professional degrees, some of which are professional doctorate...

    I have volunteered to take this case. If there are any problems with this, please let me know. Jon Cates (talk · contribs)

    I reverted the previous edit for the following reason. The editor made the comment that the ABA has deemed it ethical for lawyers to use the title "doctor." If you look at, you'll see that the ABA deemed it ethical for a lawyer who holds a doctorate *in addition to the J.D.* to use the title (the example given is a lawyer who is also a practicing dentist). I have not yet found corroborating evidence to the position that one who holds the J.D. alone can use the title. Wikiant12:17, 6 September 2006 (UTC) 1. I'd take "esquire" over "doctor" any day. =] Peyna12:45, 6 September 2006 (UTC) 2. For what it's worth, and I don't think you offered this for the purpose of demonstrating that the JD is not a doctorate anyway, but the main reason the use of "doctor" is/was prohibitted is because it might mislead potential clients into thinking either (1) you're more qualified than an attorney holding an L.L.B., or (2) you're a specialist in another field....

  4. The Juris Doctor is a postgraduate degree and may be regarded as a "doctorate degree of taught program", in contrast to a "doctorate degree of research program". Few U.S. attorneys who hold the J.D. use the title "Doctor", a term reserved mostly to physicians or a holder of a doctorate degree of a research program.

  5. "Juris doctor" means "teacher of law," juris being the Latin genitive singular, doctor being the nominative singular. "Doctorate" is an English, not a Latin, term -- "juris" is not English, there is no discipline "juris" in academics in English.
