3/3 Program Arts & Sciences
The School of Law and the J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences offer a program that enables outstanding students to enter the School of Law after their third year of college. Students in the Fulbright College are eligible to begin at the School of Law after the completion of at least 94 hours of college work if they have:
- completed all university, college, and major course requirements for their undergraduate degree;
- earned a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.5; and
- received a LSAT score of at least 159.
Such students will receive a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree after the completion of sufficient hours of School of Law work to meet the regular requirements of the Fulbright College. These students will then receive a J.D. degree after completing the required number of hours of School of Law coursework.
3/3 Program Agriculture
Exceptional students in the pre-law concentration in the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences may enroll in the School of Law in their fourth year provided the following requirements have been met. Students must have:
- completed all university, college, and major course requirements for the pre-law concentration;
- completed 12 hours in the specialization list for pre-law;
- earned a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.5 without grade renewal; and
- received an LSAT score of at least 159.
A student admitted to this program may substitute Law School course work for the remaining total hours required for the bachelor’s degree in agricultural business.
It is a requirement of the Law School’s accrediting standards that no student be admitted to the Law School until they have completed at least three-fourths of the work necessary for the baccalaureate degree. The requirements embodied in the 3/3 programs satisfy this requirement.
