The Bachelor of Arts in Law
The University of Arizona is proud to announce the collaboration of the James E. Rogers College of Law and the School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP) in the creation of a new Bachelor of Arts in Law—the first in the country.
Designed to meet the increasing demand for professionals with legal training in varied career fields, the BA in Law offers rigorous training for high-performing undergraduates with an interest in law. Students will receive instruction from College of Law faculty in key foundational areas of the law, such as property, contracts, torts, administrative law, and criminal and civil procedure. The curriculum will provide training in critical skills that are marketable across professions, such as the ability to "think like a lawyer" in solving problems and to make clearly written and logical arguments.
On graduation, students will be well-equipped for direct employment in an increasing number of jobs where legal training is an advantage, or to pursue further legal education. The BA in Law also provides the opportunity for an expedited path to law school, allowing qualified law majors to start at the James E. Rogers College of Law after their junior year (the “3+3 Program”).
