Program Structure Master of Industrial Relations/Juris Doctor Combined Degree Program (MIR/JD)   After several months of behind-the-scenes work, we're pleased to announce that the JD/MIR programs has been retooled and re-launched to better reflect the partnership between Queen's Law and the Employment Relations Programs.  The major change that has been implemented is that students in the program will no longer split their first year between the Law School and Master of Industrial Relations. Rather, incoming students will now complete their entire first year in the JD program before doing their Masters of Industrial Relations.  This not only makes it easier for students to pursue the joint degree, but ensures that the Joint students are fully integrated to the Law School community from day one.   Another significant change is that while it used to be that students had to apply for the JD/MIR before starting law school, that's no longer the case! Under the new regime, JD students can now apply for the joint programs after having completed either first or second year.   The joint program is a great way to expand your learning, and benefit from additional value at the same time: doing the MIR concurrent with your JD education lets you cross-apply certain credits to reduce your overall time of study -- and expense – while adding a Master of Industrial Relations to your academic and professional toolkit.   The JD/MIR merges graduate training in human resources management, employment and labour policy with a professional degree in law.  https://law.queensu.ca/programs/combined-degrees/mir
