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. Upon completion of their junior year, qualified, accepted students may matriculate at Roger Williams University School of Law (Rhode Island) to enroll in graduate-level law courses which may serve to fulfill their senior-year program requirements at JWU. 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 John Hazen White 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 John Hazen White College of Arts & Sciences dean’s office at the Providence Campus.
