3+3 Law School Partnerships

Our 3+3 partnerships with Duquesne University School of Law and Widener University Commonwealth Law School enable students to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a juris doctor (J.D.) degree in just six years. Under these agreements, Westminster College students to begin law school at the end of their junior year, simultaneously finishing their bachelor’s degree and pursuing their law degree.

For both programs, qualifying students must complete their major and general education requirements (including Capstone) by the end of their junior year at Westminster College.

Students must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) no later than February of their junior year and apply to Widener or Duquesne by April 1 of their junior year.

Duquesne University School of Law is located in Pittsburgh, Pa. Widener University Commonwealth Law School is located in Harrisburg, Pa. Both institutions are accredited by the American Bar Association.
