Southwestern Partners with CSUDH for JD Program
LA’s Southwestern Law School has partnered with California State University, Dominquez Hills on a joint JD/MA program, and another program that allows students to earn a bachelor’s degree and juris doctor degree in six years.
The joint JD/MA program will allow graduate students to study for a juris doctor at Southwestern Law and a concurrent master’s degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding at CSUDH.
The six-year bachelor’s and juris doctor program, also known as the 3+3 program, allows CSUDH students to start law school at Southwestern Law after three years if they meet certain requirements.
“This new collaboration presents a splendid opportunity for Southwestern to expand our law students’ academic experiences and credentials, and to encourage promising undergraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds to pursue a legal education at Southwestern,” said Dean Bryant Garth.
Southwestern Law School, formerly known as Southwestern University School of Law, is a private ABA-accredited law school located in Los Angeles, California, with about 1,000 students on a campus that includes the Bullocks Wilshire building, an admired art deco landmark.
CSUDH is a public university founded in 1965, currently serving 8,700 undergraduates.
