Products Liability Law/PhD in law


Hi Paul,

I'm trying to obtain my Ph.D. in products liability. Seattle University and University of Washington do not have such a program. Do you know which university offers such a class?



There is no such valid degree.  A law degree in the US is called a JD (Juris Doctorate).  Post graduate law degrees are LLM (Masters of Law) and SJD (Doctor of Judicial Science).  I am not aware of any law degree in "products liability".  This is part of a general tort action and is comprised by a JD.

Very truly yours,

I have been a civil litigation attorney since 1989 and am Certified as a Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. I am licensed to practice law in Arizona, Colorado (inactive) and the District of Columbia (inactive). I am also licensed with the District Court of Arizona, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

I can answer general questions regarding products liability and injury matters. I do not give legal advice over the internet and it is helpful if you list where you live such as the country and/or state.
