Westminster also participates in cooperative programs with Duquesne Univer­sity Law School and Widener University Commonwealth Law School through which students may be eligible to enter those law schools after three years of undergraduate study at Westminster. Under these agreements, a student begins law school at Duquesne University Law School or Widener University Commonwealth Law School at the end of his/her junior year at Westminster. The student must complete the full three-year law school program at Duquesne or Widener. After students have successfully completed 125 semester hours, they receive a bachelor’s degree associated with their major from Westminster College. The student must complete all major, minor, and liberal studies require­ments by the end of the junior year at Westminster, including capstone. During the junior year, the student will take the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test), apply to Duquesne Law School or Widener University Commonwealth Law School through the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) application system, notify the College’s pre-law adviser, Dr. James Rhoads, of your intention to apply to either of these law schools, and have a successful interview with the admissions director at the law school. After completing all six years of the program, they receive a J.D. from Duquesne University or Widener University.
