UAA and Willamette University College of Law have formed an innovative partnership to enhance law school opportunities for Alaska college students while addressing concerns about student debt. The schools have signed a memorandum of understanding to offer a “3+3 program” allowing students to complete a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in six years, rather than the usual seven.
Prof. Deb Periman, J.D., Legal Studies Program Coordinator at the
UAA Justice Center, worked with Willamette to develop the 3+3 program
and will be UAA’s point of contact for program advising.
