Accelerated B.S./J.D. Law Program
The 3+3 B.S./J.D. Law Program allows JWU students in certain programs who meet specified admissions criteria to earn a bachelor's degree from Johnson & Wales University and a juris doctor degree from one of the participating law schools in six years. Upon completion of their junior year, qualified, accepted students may matriculate at the School of Law to enroll in graduate-level law courses which may serve to fulfill their senior-year program requirements at JWU. First-year law classes are not considered when determining residency requirements. Students may complete remaining graduate degree requirements in two additional years.
