Accelerated JD Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers
The Accelerated JD Program at the University of Arkansas School of Law is now accepting applications for fall 2016. The AJD Program is designed specifically for individuals who have completed a law degree outside the United States, and wish to complete a JD in the United States to expand their career opportunities. The curricular structure of the AJD program is focused on successful bar passage. Our first year AJD candidates take the same foundational courses as our traditional JD candidates, while the second year is tailored to the particular goals of the candidate, focusing on bar preparation. AJD Candidates enjoy specialized faculty support throughout their matriculation, as well as tutoring and guidance from seasoned law students. To qualify, applicants must hold a degree from an accredited law school that would qualify the applicant to practice law in their country. The LSAT is not required. Candidates will receive up to thirty hours of credit for their previous coursework allowing them to complete the program over two academic years. Our fall 2016 semester will begin August 15th.
