Kentucky Wesleyan forms partnership with UofL Brandeis School of Law

Students can enter law school year early

next-logo-300x149OWENSBORO, Ky. (Feb. 10, 2017) ‚ÄĒ Kentucky Wesleyan College and the¬†University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law have partnered on a new innovative 3+3 Accelerated Law Program that will allow Wesleyan students to obtain a juris doctorate no more than six years after their high school graduation.

Students in accounting, business administration, criminal justice and criminology, English, history, legal studies or political science will enroll as undergraduates at Wesleyan through their junior year.

In their fourth year, those admitted to the Brandeis School of Law will fulfill their senior year of undergraduate study and earn their bachelor’s degree by completing their first-year of law school.

Two years later, they will receive their juris doctor degree from UofL. The program allows a student to receive both their undergraduate and law degrees with one less year of coursework and expense than is typical, allowing them to begin their legal careers one year sooner.
