RADNOR, Pa. (July 28, 2015) — Cabrini College students can now receive express admission to law school or earn their undergraduate and law degrees in just six years thanks to agreements Cabrini signed Wednesday with Widener University and its two law schools.
Jeff Gingerich, Ph.D., provost and vice president for academic affairs at Cabrini College, signed the agreements at a ceremony at Widener joined by Widener representatives Stephen C. Wilhite, D.Phil., senior vice president for academic affairs and provost; Christian Johnson, dean of Widener University Commonwealth Law School in Harrisburg, Pa., and Rodney Smolla, dean of Widener University Delaware Law School in Wilmington, Del.
“Cabrini and Widener share a common mission that is about civic engagement and social justice,” Gingerich said. “There is the justice system and there is social justice. A lot of the time, we may think that the justice system is not working for people. This partnership joins those two concepts.”
The 3+3 Early Admission Program allows qualified Cabrini students to begin their studies at either Commonwealth Law School or Delaware Law School in what would normally be their senior year of undergraduate studies. Students must complete all major and core courses and 75 percent of their bachelor’s degree with a 3.0 grade point average before enrolling at Widener. They must also fulfill all other admissions requirements.
