If you have done exceptionally well in high school, you may consider applying for the six-year accelerated program with Seton Hall University School of Law or the Pace University School of Law. Both of these programs let you earn both a Bachelor's and Law degree in just six years, three years at NJIT and three years at your selected law school.
This special program is available to outstanding seniors in US high schools who will be United States citizens or permanent residents at the time of their entry into the law school. Students in their first year of studies at NJIT or another university may be considered for the pre-law program.
The application deadline for accelerated law programs has been extended to January 15, 2024.
These programs are highly competitive. Students who are admitted to the Honors College are not necessarily admitted to the accelerated programs. Applicants should be prepared to provide evidence that they have attempted to gain insight or knowledge into their chosen profession through, for example, volunteer or research positions or special programs in or out of school.
Honors Scholars who pursue the four-year pre-law program may earn a degree in any department. With your advisor's guidance, you will apply to law school at an appropriate point in your studies at NJIT.
