3+3 BS/JD Law Program

The 3+3 BS/JD 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 6 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. Students may complete remaining graduate degree requirements in 2 additional years. Visit Articulation Agreements and select Roger Williams University School of Law to view the agreement.  

Any interested student must contact the College of Arts & Sciences dean’s office to declare intent to pursue the 3+3 Law Program. JWU students from the North Miami, Denver and Charlotte campuses 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.
