3+3 B.A. Law & Juris Doctor

Start law school while still earning your undergraduate degree—earning a B.A. and J.D. in as little as 6 years!

About the Program

The 3+3 Bachelor of Arts/Juris Doctor program enables qualified University of Arizona undergraduates to complete their B.A. in Law and J.D. in as few as six years of study. If accepted, 3+3 students begin law school following their junior year and earn 27 upper division law credits that will count towards both their Law B.A. and J.D. degrees. Students admitted to law school through the 3+3 program spend their fifth and sixth years completing the remaining units required for the J.D. at the College of Law.

Admission Requirements

To be eligible for admission to the Law BA/JD 3+3 program, you must be a Law major, and must by the end of your junior year complete the following:

  • All general education requirements;
  • All major and minor requirements, except for the LAW core and LAW elective units required for the B.A. in Law
  • Completion of a writing emphasis course
  • At least 93 undergraduate unit hours.

Application Process

To participate in the 3+3 program, you must apply to the J.D. program as a junior according to procedures established by the James E Rogers College of Law Admissions Processes

All admission decisions are based upon a holistic assessment of all application materials submitted. Unsuccessful applicants will complete their undergraduate degree in law as seniors, and may apply to law school following the usual timeline and procedures.
