Law School Transfer (2+2+3)

Transfer to Law School in the 2+2+3 Law School Pathway Project

The 2+2+3 Law School Pathway Project is a transfer program made up of a 2-year associate degree, 2-year bachelor’s degree, and a 3-year juris doctorate. The program is designed to enhance opportunities in the legal profession for diverse populations. While racial or ethnic minorities comprise 60 percent of the California population, only 20 percent of the state’s lawyers are minorities.

The 2+2+3 transfer program partners with the State Bar of California’s Council on Access and Fairness (COAF).
