How do i enroll?

You can decide to pursue the 3+3 program at any point during your undergraduate study, but it’s best to discuss your intention as early as possible with your undergraduate adviser to ensure completion of any required courses for your major. You then apply to Toledo Law in your junior year.

During your senior year, you will attend The University of Toledo College of Law and take the following courses. When you have completed all of the following first year law courses, you will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Arts and Letters. You will receive your law degree after completing the entire law program.
