The 3+3 Accelerated Law Program offers undergraduate students at any of six institutions – Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More University, Mount St. Joseph University, University of the Cumberlands, Campbellsville University and Union College – the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a Juris Doctor degree in six years, instead of the typical seven years. Students spend the first three years of undergraduate study at their undergraduate college and attend NKU Chase College of Law for the next three years, counting their first year at Chase toward completion of both a bachelor’s degree awarded by their undergraduate institution and the first year of law school credits.

Students enrolled at other partner institutions (non-NKU students) should consult with their undergraduate advisers to create the best academic plan for the 3+3 Program as  undergraduate credit requirements can vary among institutions.  Advising information for NKU students is listed below.

Disclaimer: Students interested in practicing law outside of Kentucky and Ohio should contact the state bar association or the National Conference of Bar Examiners to determine if completion of the 3+3 Accelerated Law Program will satisfy the requirements needed to sit for the bar exam in the student’s preferred jurisdiction.
