Doctor of both laws
A Doctor of Canon and Civil Law, from the Latin doctor utriusque juris, or juris utriusque doctor, or doctor juris utriusque is a scholar who has acquired a doctorate in both civil law and church law. The degree was common among Catholic and German scholars of the Middle Ages and early modern times. Today the degree is awarded by the Pontifical Lateran University in the State of the Vatican City after a period of six years study and by the University of Wuerzburg. The ex-President of the U.S., Grover Cleveland, was given the J.U.D. as an honorary degree by the Augustinian College of St. Thomas of Villanova in 1902.
