Do Joint Degrees Affect Clerkship Prospects?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Mar 15, 2011 8:04 pm

Hi:

1L at HYS, currently considering two joint-degree programs. One would be a JD/MA that I could do without spending any more time at the school. The other would be a four-year program (think MBA/MPA/etc.), either at my same school or at another top graduate program.

My question is whether pursuing a joint degree would adversely affect clerkship prospects. I know that some firms look down on joint degrees (or, at the very least, consider those with them "flight risks"), and am wondering if judges do the same.
