June 22, 2016 - This "3+3" agreement is not limited to criminal justice or legal studies majors -- any undergraduate student, regardless of major, can earn credits toward law school under this program. “This is a significant opportunity for students in all majors who are interested in attending law school,” said Assistant Professor Kurt Ward, director of criminal justice and legal studies and director of ABA paralegal education at Elms College. Dean Gouvin added that the program “should be particularly attractive to certain types of students for whom time is very precious,” such as those who interrupted their studies to raise families or who recently completed active military service. “They might find that saving a year on the combined undergraduate and graduate degree makes a real difference,” he said.
The 3+3 program becomes effective beginning in the 2016-17 admission cycle for students desiring to begin law school in the fall of 2017. For more information on the program, click here.
