Juris Doctorate Partnership

with Widener University

Through a new partnership with Widener University, Cabrini students can complete an accelerated JD (Doctorate of Jurisprudence).

Students may apply for the 3+3 program option in which students spend three years (90+ credits) at Cabrini and three years at one of the Widener Law schools.

Alternatively, students may earn a BA or a BS in their declared major at Cabrini University after completion of the first year at the Widener University Law School by completing specific general education and major courses while at Cabrini.

Students applying for the 4+3 program option must meet the same admission criteria as those applying for the 3+3 program. However, these students will complete all of their coursework at Cabrini (123+ credits) before moving on to law school.

For more information, contact James Hedtke, PhD, at jhedtke@cabrini.edu.
