Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law establishes partnership with Notre Dame College

Jul 20, 2017

Notre Dame College students hoping to pursue a career in the legal field will have a faster path to completing their degrees thanks to a partnership with Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law. Notre Dame College is located in South Euclid, Ohio.

The 3+3 Legal Education Admissions Program will allow students to complete their bachelor’s degree and juris doctorate degrees in six years instead of the normally required seven years of study.

Eligible students must be from the Division of Arts and Humanities, the Division of Business and/or the Division of Sciences while at Notre Dame College. Under the agreement, students with the appropriate test scores and GPA will be guaranteed admission to Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law.

“For Notre Dame College students interested in pursuing a legal education, the 3+3 program at ONU Law is a great opportunity to save on tuition costs and enter the workforce earlier,” said Rachel Frey, director of law admissions at Ohio Northern University. “Students will enjoy the familiarity of our small college and vibrant campus, making it a smooth transition to law school.”

The enrollment agreement is scheduled to last for five years but is eligible for renewal upon completion. The ONU Law 3+3 program is currently offered with several other undergraduate institutions, including: Ohio Northern University, the University of Findlay, St. John Fisher College and Emory & Henry College.
