Partnership shortens time to law degree

A new 3 + 3 program puts students on track to earn a law degree, while shaving one year off the traditional seven-year course of study.  The partnership with the University of Arizona is available to students majoring in environmental studies, who will complete their first three years at NAU.

Diana Elder, associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Engineering, Forestry and Natural Sciences, said many environmental studies students have been interested in pursuing law degrees. This program meets that end by “providing a well-guided, expedited, and cost-efficient path toward achieving their career objectives.”

Elder helped develop the 3 + 3 partnership in her former position as associate director for the School of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability.
