Creighton School of Law Accelerated Degree Program

The Creighton University Law School is offering interested students a unique opportunity to earn their law degree in two years, instead of the typical three years. To inquire about the program, please fill out the form below.

Students accepted into the program take the same courses, from the same outstanding faculty, as students enrolled in the traditional three-year program.

"This program is one of only a few of its kind in the country," said Eric Pearson, Associate Dean for the Law School. "This is a great opportunity for highly motivated students to earn their law degree in a rigorous, compressed schedule and quickly move into their careers."

Students in the program also have opportunities to participate in Creighton's award-winning trial teams, as well as other innovative offerings such as the  summer study-abroad program "From Nuremberg to The Hague," in which students travel to Germany and The Netherlands to study international law, the impact of the Holocaust on the law, and the prosecution of war criminals and perpetrators of genocide and crimes against humanity.

"Due to the accelerated nature of the program, students may not be able to participate in all of the Law School's various offerings," Pearson said, "but they will receive an outstanding, well-rounded legal education that prepares them for today's competitive job market."
