3+3 Accelerated Law Program

The 3+3 Accelerated Law Program allows certain undergraduate students to apply to Louisville Law in their junior year. Students admitted under the program fulfill their senior year of undergraduate credits and earn their bachelor’s degrees after successfully completing the first year of JD coursework.

To be eligible for admission under this program, students must complete three years of undergraduate coursework in a qualifying major at the University of Louisville or one of its 3+3 partner institutions: Campbellsville University, Kentucky Wesleyan College, Murray State University and Union College. Students must satisfy all general education requirements for the bachelor’s degree prior to matriculating at Louisville Law as well as all major coursework requirements, unless they have received approval that first-year JD courses will satisfy outstanding major requirements. Students must also satisfy any other institutional requirements for graduation.

Interested students must apply by April 15 of their junior year to be considered for admissions under the 3+3 program. 3+3 applicants are subject to the same entrance standards as traditional first-year applicants. In addition to the standard application requirements, 3+3 applicants must interview with a Louisville Law admissions representative as part of the application process.

Please note that 3+3 students will pay the law school tuition rate for all three years of their enrollment at Louisville Law. For 3+3 students earning their bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisville, undergraduate scholarships may be applied toward the first year of the JD program.
