Earn your bachelor's degree and Juris Doctorate in a fraction of the time!

Walsh University has partnered with some of the nation's top law schools to provide students with an opportunity to obtain both a bachelor's degree and a juris doctorate (JD) in a fraction of the time it typically takes student to complete both degrees. This saves students both time and money.

Through these programs, students can complete three years of undergraduate coursework and then begin working toward their juris doctorate while simultaneously earning their bachelor's degree in legal studies from Walsh. Depending on the program selected, students will then have one or two years left to complete their JD. This allows students to complete both a bachelor's degree and juris doctorate in just five or six years, rather than the typical seven years to obtain both degrees.
