Law Program Added to Academic Offerings

Concordia University, St. Paul has entered a partnership with Concordia University School of Law in Boise, Idaho, making the pursuit of a career practicing law even more achievable and affordable for students enrolled at CSP.

The new 3+3 Law Program gives students the option of obtaining a four-year undergraduate degree in any discipline and completing law school in six years rather than the usual seven. The first three years of the program would be spent attending Concordia St. Paul, fulfilling all of the requirements necessary to graduate with a bachelor’s degree. The fourth year of studies would be at Concordia University Law School where students would complete their undergraduate coursework and begin their first year of law school.

Students would be eligible to apply for admission to Concordia University School of Law during their junior year. Once admitted, students start classes in the fall as a full-time, first-year law student, rather than returning to CSP for their senior year. After the first year of law school credits earned will count toward both a Juris Doctor degree and as elective credits necessary to complete an undergraduate degree at Concordia St. Paul.
