3+3 Dual Admission in Law Program

The 3+3 Dual Admission in Law Program is a partnership between John Carroll University and Case Western Reserve University School of Law wherein a student obtains a bachelor’s degree from John Carroll University followed by the Juris Doctor degree from Case Western Reserve University in six years. The 3+3 Law Program is a non-traditional path that saves the student a total of one year in studies and expenses.

There are two ways through which a student may gain entrance into the 3+3 Law Program:

  1. Incoming freshmen who meet the program’s criteria are welcome to apply via the JCU Gateway
  2. All juniors in their fall semester who meet the program’s criteria may apply directly with CWRU School of Law

For additional information, please contact Dr. Elizabeth A. Stiles, pre-law adviser, at

To meet the 3+3 Law Program’s criteria upon admission to John Carroll, students must have a high school GPA of 3.4 or above. To maintain dual-admission status, students must cultivate a John Carroll GPA of 3.4 or above by their fourth semester and score in the top 70th percentile on the LSAT. 

Students with 32 or fewer accepted transfer credits and a high school GPA of at least 3.4 on a 4.0 scale are eligible for the program.
