Accelerated J.D. Program

Accelerated J.D. Program

Small Law Class

You can save time and start your legal career faster with our Accelerated J.D. Program. Instead of the standard three years, this option allows you to finish a semester sooner, so you will graduate in January instead of May and have the opportunity to take the February Bar Exam.

Students who choose this two and a half year track will need to take a full-time course load in the summer between their 2L and 3L years. You can find a list of the classes below.

Interested students must meet with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the spring of their 1L year before registering for fall classes, so they can make sure their schedule will allow for them to finish in two and a half years. They are also required to be in good academic standing.
