2 0 | L O U I S V I L L E . E D U Interdisciplinary Studies 3+3 program adds up to savings Students who want to jump-start their legal career — and save some money — are an ideal fi t for the university's new 3+3 Accelerated Law Program. By partnering with the College of Arts and Sciences, the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is helping criminal justice, history and women's and gender studies majors count their senior year of college as their fi rst year of law school. By shaving off a year of study, savings are estimated to be more than $20,000 for in-state students and $37,000 for non-resident students. UofL administrators said the collaboration between the two colleges is a good example of interdisciplinary teamwork and innovative solutions to help students graduate quickly and with less debt. Additional majors may be added later. Eligible scholars can apply for 3+3 during their junior year. If accepted, they then apply to Brandeis Law, provided they meet minimum grade point average and law school admission test (LSAT) score requirements. For more information, contact law school admissions counselor Camilo Ortiz at 502-852-7390. A group of 2016 fi rst-year law students take an honor oath before classes begin. The law school looks forward to having 3+3 program participants in next year's class.
