3+3 Early Law School Admissions Program (ELSAP)

The Robert Morris University Early Law School Admission 3+3 Program (ELSAP) is a program pursuant to an agreement between RMU and Duquesne University School of Law. It is designed for students who excel academically and are motivated ad resourceful. Only the very best and highly qualified first-year students can become a candidate for ELSAP and is only available to certain select students and majors in the School of Business and the School of Education and Social Sciences who are interested in pursuing a degree in the law. Both the School of Business and the School of Education and Social Sciences have specific requirements for candidacy for ELSAP.

Students will concentrate on cultivating their communication skills, both oral and written. And they will be assisted in applying these skills to coursework during both their undergraduate work.

Students in ELSAP will begin their first-year law school courses during their fourth year of study and apply those credits toward both their bachelor’s and law degree. ELSAP candidates can obtain a J.D. degree along with their bachelor’s degree in six years instead of seven. These students will potentially have an advantage over students in the traditional seven-year program by getting a head start.

The Robert Morris University Early Law School Admission 3+3 Program (ELSAP) provides:

  • A RMU ELSAP advisor and RMU Pre-Law Coordinator who will assist candidates in succeeding in all aspects of the program and the preparation for a law education.

  • Tools for meeting the demanding academic challenges, which will potentially result in a competitive career advantage.

  • Academic courses during undergraduate studies, which will sharpen the skills necessary to succeed in the law school environment.

  • Assurance of placement in the Duquesne University School of Law upon successful completion of the program’s undergraduate degree requirements and other designated requirements of the ELSAP as more fully described by the School of Business and the School of Social Sciences.

  • Assistance in preparing for the application process, including help with LSAT preparation, personal statements and recommendation letters.

  • The potential of the entry into the job market one year in advance of your students completing a seven-year bachelor’s and law degree program.

  • A potential one year tuition savings

  • Exposure to professionals, professors and alumni through networking sessions
