The Association of American Law Schools recommends that prospective law students have a comprehensive liberal arts background. In accordance with these recommendations, Neumann University has redesigned its curriculum in order to offer a sequence of courses which represents a sound preparation for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and the study of law.
Neumann University and Widener University Delaware Law School have created an articulation agreement that will give Neumann first-year students the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree and a juris doctor degree in just six years.
The first three years of study will be at Neumann. During this time, students must successfully complete all major and core curriculum requirements, 75 percent of their bachelor's degree requirements (90 credits), and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
The last portion of this 3+3 program will be at Widener University Delaware Law for students who meet the school's LSAT standard (at least the median score for entering Delaware Law students) and admission requirements for character and fitness. At the completion of one year of successful full-time study at Delaware Law, students will receive a Neumann bachelor's degree. They may then continue legal studies full-time (the 3+3 plan) or part-time.
Interested students should contact the pre-law advisor, Mr. Andrew Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
