Thanks to a new partnership between Elmhurst College and The John Marshall Law School, Elmhurst students have the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in just six years.
Students who are accepted into the 3+3 program enter John Marshall after completing their junior year of undergraduate study at Elmhurst. They receive an Elmhurst degree after completing the first year at John Marshall, and the JD upon completion of the three-year law school curriculum.
To apply for the 3+3 program, students submit an application to John Marshall during their junior year at Elmhurst, preferably by early January. They also take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) during their junior year, preferably by October.
The John Marshall Law School will evaluate each application carefully, paying close attention to each student’s academic record, faculty recommendations and LSAT score. The admission committee will also consider additional qualifications such as co-curricular activities, involvement in cultural or civic affairs, and work experience.
By the end of junior year, 3+3 students must complete all requirements for their academic major, all requirements of the Elmhurst College Integrated Curriculum, and a minimum of 24 undergraduate credits toward an Elmhurst degree.
