Bachelor of Science and Juris Doctor (J.D.) Degree

Handle complex legal management issues in today’s technology-driven world.

The Lally School offers a three-year accelerated curriculum that allows exceptionally motivated students to complete their Bachelor of Science and a Juris Doctor in six years. With management core coursework completed, an excellent GPA, and a strong LSAT score, students may apply to either Columbia Law School or Albany Law School during their third year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Both Columbia Law and Albany Law have their own application processes, and each is responsible for admission decisions for accelerated students.

Students in the program take all of their required courses in their first three years. Then, once accepted to law school, students complete their Bachelor of Science while fulfilling the coursework of a typical 1L schedule.

For students who opt not to pursue the accelerated option, top-performing Lally students have applied and been accepted to Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, Virginia, and Chicago, to name a few.
