RALEIGH – Campbell Law School is partnering with Methodist University to expand its program offerings under its 3+3 program. With the 3+3 program, undergraduate students can earn both an undergraduate degree, as well as a juris doctor in just six years, saving students time and tuition. 

Under the 3+3 program, Methodist University undergraduate students spend three years completing the required coursework for their undergrad degree at Methodist. Upon acceptance to the program, students spend their fourth year earning credits towards their juris doctor. The credits earned during their first year at Campbell Law will simultaneously fulfill their remaining undergraduate degree requirements, allowing students to earn a juris doctorate degree in six years rather than the traditional seven. 

While the program was originally exclusive to Campbell University and Meredith College undergrads, 3+3 is now available to undergraduate students attending Methodist University as well as William Peace University and Salem College. 


Since its founding in 1976, Campbell Law has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion, and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. Among its accolades, the school has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) as having the nation’s top Professionalism Program and by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 4,700 alumni, who make their home in nearly all 50 states and beyond. In 2021, Campbell Law celebrated 45 years of graduating legal leaders and 12 years of being located in a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of North Carolina’s Capital City.
