Accelerated Degree Program with Appalachian School of Law

Virginia Wesleyan students from many different majors can attend law school as part of the accelerated degree program between Virginia Wesleyan and Appalachian School of Law (ASL).

The 3-3 Program allows students to proceed directly to law school after three years of undergraduate study at Virginia Wesleyan University, so they can pursue the Juris Doctor (JD) program at ASL.  The ASL Juris Doctor program includes broad training in the theory and practice of law, as well as opportunities for focused study in Litigation, Criminal Law, or Natural Resource Law.

Students in the program typically earn their bachelor's degree after their first year at ASL and their JD degree after their third year at ASL - earning both degrees in a total of six years of study.  Admission to the program requires a 3.0 cumulative GPA and an LSAT score of at least 153.  Students must complete at least 96 credit hours prior to their matriculation to law school.
