Interplanetary Legal Doctorate
An Interplanetary Legal Doctorate (IL.D.) is a degree conferred by the Shadow Proclamation. It allows one to practice law in almost every jurisdiction in the Five Galaxies.
The study is particularly intense, requiring knowledge of legal systems and philosophies from across the galaxies. The typical student requires a minimum of fifty years of study (although accelerated study programs have been authorized when a lack of qualified legal representation exists).
The actual exam requires hand writing answers to all the questions. It takes six days to sit the exam and one day to grade. It's very biblical. By the eighth day the applicant will have his IL.D. or have to study further and retake the exam.
