3+3 Program with JWU

RWU Law, Johnson & Wales University announce first-of-its-kind "3+3" program that will save students tuition dollars by cutting time it takes to earn a law degree.

3+3 ProgramPROVIDENCE, Sept. 10, 2015 — Roger Williams University School of Law and Johnson and Wales University have come up with a way to cut the time -- and cost -- required for students to earn a law degree.

Under the terms of a new articulation agreement, Johnson and Wales (JWU) students who meet specific criteria will be allowed to apply for admission to the law program at Roger Williams during their third year. If accepted, they will then earn their Johnson and Wales degree by completing their first year of studies at Roger Williams Law.

Then they can complete their law degree, and along the way save one year of tuition. This “3 + 3” program is the first agreement of its kind between RWU Law and another Rhode Island university outside Roger Williams University.

Roger Williams Law School Dean Michael Yelnosky noted that RWU Law and JWU share a commitment to controlling the spiraling costs of higher education.

“We are very excited about this partnership,” he said. “It was a pleasure to work with the JWU team because our institutions share an innovative ethos and a commitment to controlling the spiraling cost to students of higher education. We look forward to having talented graduates of JWU obtain their law degrees at RWU Law while saving a year’s worth of tuition and living expenses.”

Angela Renaud, Ed.D., dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at JWU, added that it is a great benefit for her school's students.

“The university is pleased to provide this opportunity to exceptional JWU students who see law school as instrumental to their future professional success,” said  “With an accelerated path toward this goal, it is in keeping with JWU's spirit of combining robust academics with a pragmatic, professional approach to education.”
