Meet a 3+3 Student

I graduated Pace University- NYC in 2008 as a member of the 3+3 Joint Degree BA/JD program. I was admitted to Pace Law School during my junior year and will finish both my BA and my JD degrees in six years, instead of the usual seven. This program has been incredibly beneficial to me and is a great conversation starter in interviews. It definitely helps to get me noticed when competing for a job or internship!

I was drawn to Pace Law School by our strong commitment to public interest law. Both Andrea Putnam and Jennifer Friedman of the Public Interest Law Center have been invaluable to me in my journey at law school. They are always available to talk and guide me through the internship process. During the summer after my first-year, I interned at Legal Services of the Hudson Valley in Yonkers, doing landlord tenant law and representing low-income residents. This summer, I will be interning with the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) in Manhattan representing low income New Yorkers in government benefits cases. Pace Law is helping me to succeed and realize my goals on my legal career path.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have on the 3+3 program and whether it may be the right choice for you. I can be reached at cschweitzer@law.pace.edu
