Why study Law BA/Law JD at UB?

The Accelerated BA to Law JD Program is a unique opportunity for undergraduate Law students to accelerate their course of study by completing their Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctor in just six years of full-time study, saving students a full year of time and tuition.

The changing market for legal services has led to a proliferation of new law-related career possibilities. The Law BA is intended to prepare students for careers that do not require a licensed attorney, but where a sound understanding of the law is valuable. For example, compliance specialists work in corporations of all kinds to ensure that organizations comply with the laws of intellectual property and privacy, and human resources managers need to understand employment law and benefits rules.

At the same time, the practice of law continues to become more and more complex. Whole new careers have developed to support the work lawyers do; many of these careers do not require a licensed lawyer, but do require some understanding of law along with other technical skills. E-discovery and litigation support professionals apply technical expertise to manage the massive volume of electronically stored evidence required in all kinds of litigation. Trial and jury consultants combine such technical expertise with a practical knowledge of psychology and sociology to help lawyers communicate complex concepts to juries.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all requirements, the student will have knowledge of:

  • Demonstrate the ability to navigate substantive and procedural law, the democratic political system, and government policies
  • Identify relevant legal and factual issues, undertake legal research, and employ these skills in legal analysis, reasoning, and problem solving.
    • Develop the ability to apply reasoning in the analysis of a wide range of political and legal issues and problems.
    • Engage in theoretically-informed interpretations of political, social, and legal ideas and phenomena.
  • Communicate proficiently in both written and oral form.
    • Develop writing skills to intellectually communicate ideas and research findings about political and legal topics.
    • Develop the ability to effectively take a position and defend an argument against criticism.
    • Present a predictive analysis and a persuasive argument orally.
  • Fulfill professional values and ethical responsibilities to clients, the legal system, and the public.
  • Apply professional skills needed for competent and ethical participation as a member of the legal profession in the appropriate cultural and social context.
