  • Law School

    St. John’s University School of Law

    The purpose of the academic partnership between St. John’s University School of Law and Manhattan College is to formalize a 3+3 Combined B.A./B.S. and J.D. Degree Program. The 3+3 Program enables Political Science majors in the School of Liberal Arts at Manhattan College to become first-year law students at St. John’s after completing three-quarters of the total number of credit hours required by Manhattan College and a minimum of 6 semesters for the award of a bachelor’s degree. Following the successful completion of the first year of law school, Manhattan College will award the student the B.A. degree, granting credit for the final year of the bachelor’s degree based on successful completion of the first year of the J.D. After satisfactorily completing the full degree requirements for the Juris Doctor program at St. John’s, the student shall be awarded a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from St. John’s University.

    Students must officially apply for the program no later than March 15 of their freshman year. It is advised that an even earlier application take place so that the proper selection of courses can facilitate the program. Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher for all college credits completed at the time of application and must maintain their grade point average until the time of matriculation at St. John’s.  Accepted students must follow a strict sequence of coursework as advised by the Assistant Dean of the School of Liberal Arts in order to participate in the program.  Students must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Assistant Dean of Admissions and Recruitment at St. John’s and the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at Manhattan College that they will be able to complete the regimen of undergraduate courses in the required time frame.  Additionally, students must demonstrate that they have satisfactorily completed all other degree requirements for the conferral of their bachelor’s degree, once the additional 33 or 34 academic credits from the first year of study at St. John’s have been applied towards completion of their undergraduate degree program. The first year of study at St. John’s is a full-time course of study, and participants in the 3+3 program are not permitted to be concurrently enrolled in any other courses beyond the first year curriculum at St. John’s.

    Students must have a strong LSAT or GRE score at the discretion of the Dean of Admissions at St. John’s. Students should take the LSAT or GRE by winter of their junior year. Students who apply to participate in the 3+3 Program must interview in person or by video conference with a St. John’s admissions counselor.

    Admission is not guaranteed and is very competitive. Students must meet St. John’s criteria for admission. Please note, a particular grade point average, LSAT, or GRE score does not guarantee admission in any particular year, and the standards for admission evolve from year to year. In the event that the student is not accepted into the 3+3 Program, the student will be expected to follow the normal course of study prescribed by Manhattan College for completion of the B.A. or B.S. degree. Failure to be accepted to the School of Law will have no impact on the student’s academic record or standing at Manhattan College.

    Students who, for any reason, fail to successfully complete their first year in the School of Law may return to Manhattan College, receive credit for those courses successfully completed (C or better) in the School of Law, and complete the remaining bachelor’s degree requirements at Manhattan College in order to graduate. Students in the Program shall be eligible for scholarships if their credentials fall within the scholarship distribution range applicable to non 3+3 Program applicants, but no scholarships are guaranteed.

    See Br. Daniel Gardner or Assistant Dean Dianna Cruz for more information about the application process for this articulation program.
