Degree Awarded: B.A. in Law

Northern Kentucky University’s College of Arts and Sciences is proud to announce the creation of a new Bachelor of Arts in Law.

This program is the first of its kind in the region and is designed to meet an increasing demand for professionals with legal training. Students will be jointly instructed by faculty from Chase College of Law and the Department of Criminal Justice, Political Science and Organizational Leadership.

3+3 Acclerated Law Program

The BA in Law also provides the opportunity for an expedited path to law school, allowing qualified law majors to start at the Chase College of Law after their junior year in the 3+3 Program.

This program offers NKU students an opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a Juris Doctor in one year less than normally required to earn the degrees separately. In this program, students will spend the first three years of their undergraduate study at NKU, and then they will attend NKU Chase College of Law for the next three years.


Our curriculum provides training in sought-after skills that will make graduates marketable in multiple professions that require the ability to think like a lawyer including;

  • finance
  • human resources
  • compliance/corporate ethics
  • conflict resolution specialist
  • tax advisor
  • immigration specialist
  • lobbyist
  • health/medical administrator
