Academic Catalog 2022-2023 [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

3+3 Accelerated Law Program


• Applications accepted for first-year fall term enrollment at Union College with a cap of 20 students at any one time at Union.

• SAT or ACT scores will be required as part of the application.

• Students accepted to the program will be offered a spot in the Law Scholars Program, which like the Union Scholars program, includes the ability to take a fourth course free of charge each term and to take Scholars FYP and SRS courses. Unlike the Union Scholars, the Law Scholars will graduate from Union with 36 credits rather than 38.

• Students will be encouraged to earn their Union B.A. or B.S. in 3 years, through a combination of their coursework over this time, any advanced credit from their high school experience, the use of the aforementioned fourth courses, and summer courses (up to three pre-approved courses can be taken at colleges other than Union.) Students will stay in the program by maintaining a 3.4 GPA. Students have the option of spending four years at Union, should they choose to do so.

• Students will be encouraged to contact Albany Law School to be assisted with obtaining at least one summer internship after their first, second or third year. Academic credit will be an option for the internship(s) with an additional fee.

• Students will begin their law degree coursework as soon as they have completed their Union College degree requirements.

• Students will take their LSAT during their third year at Union. Continuing to Albany Law School will not be contingent on the score, though a student’s merit scholarship to Albany Law School will be contingent on academic criteria, which includes the LSAT score.
