Bachelor in Law - Pathway to J.D. (Dual Admission) Nova Southeastern University Undergraduate Programs
A Program for Future Lawyers, Attorneys, and Judges
Nova Southeastern University’s unique Juris Doctor Dual Admission program will reserve your place in the Shepard Broad College of Law while you complete your bachelor’s degree. If you already know you want to pursue a legal career, dual admission can take away the stress of wondering where you’ll earn your J.D.—you’ll know you have a spot waiting at NSU’s top-ranked College of Law.
Earning a Juris Doctor at NSU will prepare you to practice law in the complex and modern workplace. You’ll enjoy flexible programming, in-demand concentrations, expert professors, and clinical internships that bring the law to life and prepare you for professional success. You’ll also benefit from NSU’s two on-campus courtrooms, where you’ll turn legal theory from your classes into real-world practice.
Your faculty, mentors, and clinical supervisors are dedicated to seeing you flourish as part of the legal community. Whether you want to become a lawyer or judge—or enter a career in government or business—this could be the right program for you.
The Dual Admission Law program leads to a bachelor’s degree and a Juris Doctor (J.D.). After students successfully complete the undergraduate degree program requirements, they will enter the professional degree program after three or four years of undergraduate study.
The law school dual admission program is available to students in all undergraduate majors. Undergraduate students should choose courses that will strengthen and hone their skills in three areas essential for success in law study:
- The ability to read complex material with a high level of understanding;
- The ability to think and reason logically and analytically; and
- The ability to communicate effectively, particularly in written work.
