ONU Law Establishes Two New 3+3 Partnerships

Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law has entered into two partnerships that will allow students at Trine University and the Indiana Institute of Technology to fast track their way to a law degree. 

The 3+3 Legal Education Admissions Program (LEAP) will allow select students to complete their undergraduate and law degree training in six years. Students will complete their fourth year of college at the ONU College of Law, which will also count toward their law degree. 

Eligibility for the 3+3 program varies between the two undergraduate institutions. Students at Trine University must be majoring in English, general studies, criminal justice, psychology, communication or another major approved by the university’s vice president of academic affairs. Eligible students at Indiana Tech must major in criminal law or pre-law.

Under the two agreements, students with appropriate LSAT scores and GPA will be guaranteed admission to ONU Law. 

“For students interested in pursuing a legal education, the 3+3 program at ONU Law is a great opportunity to save on tuition costs and enter the workforce earlier,” said Rachel Frey, director of law admissions at Ohio Northern University in a press release. 

The ONU Law 3+3 program is currently offered with several other undergraduate institutions, including Ohio Northern University, the University of Findlay, St. John Fisher College, Emory and Henry College, and Notre Dame College.
