What Is the 3+3 Accelerated Program?
A partnership between Barry University’s College of Arts and Sciences and Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law, the 3+3 Accelerated Program enables qualified students to earn a Bachelor’s and Juris Doctor degree in six years instead of the typical seven. This means that your senior year of college can double as your first year of law school!
Students who are eligible for this rigorous program enjoy full access to School of Law faculty and resources, including our trial and moot court competition teams and our five in-house legal clinics. The School of Law also offers a variety of externship opportunities that allow you to practice law under the supervision of accomplished attorneys. The Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law is located in Orlando, Florida. Students who are accepted into the 3+3 Accelerated Program will be expected to attend classes and/or extracurricular events on the Orlando campus.
