The 3+3 Accelerated Law Program offers NKU students an opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a Juris Doctor (i.e. the degree necessary to become a licensed attorney) in one year fewer than normally required to earn the degrees separately. In this program, students will spend the first three years of their undergraduate study at NKU, and then they will attend NKU Chase College of Law for the next three years.
