What exactly is the difference between a concurrent degree and a joint degree (mentioned on the Harvard Law School's website--as well as other Law School websites). <http://www.law.harvard.edu/academics/degrees/special-programs/index.html>
I get the feeling that concurrent degrees are one you design for yourself with approval from schools, and joint degrees are pre-structured for students who want to pursue studies in two different fields.
Does anyone know? Please help!

Joint degrees allow you to count certain courses jointly- as credit for both the law degree and the other degree. Concurrent degrees mean you're working towards two degrees simultaneously and may be able to go back and forth between schools, but you don't automatically get to double count classes.
