Hi good folks, Not sure if anyone already started a thread pertaining to Northeastern's DLP program. It looks like a few visits to campus are required, but the majority of the degree can be completed via distance learning. Furthermore, all coursework is completed within two years, and I believe the dissertation is written in conjunction with the coursework, meaning the degree is conferred after two years. The information is located here: http://www.northeastern.edu/graduate/programs/doctor-of-law-and-policy/ I'm still working on my MA in Public Policy, and won't be pursuing doctoral studies anytime soon, or probably at all, due to the unbelievable commitment involved. However, I was wondering if some of our resident PhD, DBA, or Ed.D types could weigh in on this degree and let me know what you think. If I personally pursued this degree it would simply be to bolster and enhance my expertise in Public Policy and expand my credentials in the field. I plan to work in policy analysis and possibly do some authoring and eventually run for public office.
