Lacey Parham, a senior from Owensboro, is taking advantage of the 3+3 program offered by the Brandeis School of Law that allows her to finish her bachelor’s degree during her first year of law school.
Parham graduated high school with “a few associates degrees” from Owensboro Community and Technical College to “get a head start in college.” She transferred to UofL last year with a Criminal Justice major.
The new 3+3 program allows her to finish her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice while simultaneously finishing her first year in law school. This will allow her to sooner fulfill her longtime career goal of becoming an Air Force JAG (Judge Advocate Officer).
“I had already fast tracked my education starting in high school and the 3+3 program is giving me the opportunity to finish law school early, which will give me more time to serve,” Parham said. “I can think of no greater honor than being able to represent my country in the courtroom and I’ll do anything to get to that point.”
