The BA/JD Dual-Degree Program, a joint endeavor of Camden College of Arts and Sciences and the Rutgers Law SchoolCamden, enables highly accomplished students to complete both a Bachelor of Arts and a Juris Doctor in six years, rather than the usual seven. Students participating in this accelerated program matriculate in the Law School and complete their first year of law school courses during their fourth year as undergraduates. To prepare for this fourth year, they must complete all undergraduate course requirements in General Education and in their chosen major and compile at least 92 credits during their first three years in Camden. The 28 credits required during the first year of law school count toward both degrees.
Normally, BA/JD students are awarded their bachelors degrees at the end of their fourth year and are eligible to participate in the College of Arts and Sciences graduation ceremonies at that time. The Juris Doctor is typically awarded after two additional years as a full-time law student, on successful completion of the required 84 total course credits in the Law School and of all other J.D. requirements.
