C|M|LAW & Trine Enhance Legal Education

CM|Law & TrineCleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Trine University in Indiana have agreed to offer students the option of earning bachelor and law degrees in expedient fashion through a joint 3+3 Bachelor’s/Law Accelerated Degree Program.

Students who enroll in the joint 3+3 program will have the opportunity to complete both bachelor’s and law degrees in just six years instead of the traditional seven years required to complete four years of undergraduate studies and three years of law school. The final year of the student’s undergraduate studies at Trine will coincide with their first year at Cleveland-Marshall, allowing participants to earn their undergraduate degree from Trine after the completion of their first year of law school studies.

“Our law school welcomes the opportunity to offer students committed to studying the law the ability to accelerate their path to a legal degree and we look forward to educating future students through a successful partnership with Trine,” said Cleveland-Marshall Dean and Joseph C. Hostetler-BakerHostetler Chair in Law Lee Fisher.

The agreement with Trine represents the seventh 3+3 partnership Cleveland-Marshall has established since becoming the first Ohio law school to offer a 3+3 program in 2014.
