Howard U. Offers Bachelor’s-JD Dual Degree Program for Law Students

Howard University has announced the establishment of a joint Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctorate (B.A.-J.D.) program for incoming first-year students.

The program, which will allow students to complete their bachelor’s and law degrees in six years instead of seven, provides a cost-effective path toward an advanced degree, the university said.

“Since 1869, Howard University School of Law has empowered lawyers to become specialized advocates capable of serving their communities,” said Howard President Wayne A.I. Frederick. “In 151 years, the practice of law has expanded and changed, and Howard has evolved as well. Our B.A.-J.D. joint degree program will develop more lawyers with various disciplines from communications to sciences, focused on the growing issues that matter to all people, including Black people and the African diaspora.”

Interested students are required to submit a 500-word essay on their interest in the joint degree program. They must also have stellar SAT or ACT scores, as well as a high undergraduate GPA and strength in their high school course selection. A standout personal statement and history of involvement in extracurricular activities are also required.
