3+3 B.S./J.D. Law Program

The 3+3 B.S./J.D. Law Program allows JWU Criminal Justice, Liberal Studies and Political Science students who meet specified admissions criteria to earn a bachelor's degree from Johnson & Wales University and a juris doctor degree from Roger Williams University in six years. Qualified, accepted students may enroll in graduate-level law classes at Roger Williams University (Rhode Island) during their senior year at JWU, while fulfilling bachelor’s degree requirements simultaneously. Roger Williams law classes are not considered when determining residency requirements. Students may complete remaining graduate degree requirements in two additional years. Visit Articulation Agreements and select Roger Williams University School of Law to view the agreement.  

Interested students must contact the College of Arts & Sciences dean’s office to declare intent to pursue the 3+3 Law Program. JWU students from the Charlotte Campus would require a transfer to the Providence Campus to participate. Pre-law advising is required. A formal application to Roger Williams University’s law school must be submitted before December 1 of the student's junior year at JWU.

For more information about program requirements, please contact the College of Arts & Sciences dean’s office at the Providence Campus.
