Meet a 3+3 Student


Christopher McClain '17
 

I was admitted to Pace Law School at the end of my junior year at Pace University, and I am currently on track to receive both my BS and JD degrees in six years instead of the usual seven.

I had heard about the 3+3 Program for the first time at my undergraduate orientation, and I continued to follow up on it with my Dyson advisor throughout my sophomore and junior years.

I was interested in the program because of the time and money I would save. Through this program, I will attain my degree a year earlier, enter the field sooner, and save a substantial amount of tuition.

So far, my 1L year is going better than I could have imagined, and I am doing very well in all of my classes.

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 cmcclain@law.pace.edu.


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 finished both my BA and my JD degrees in six years, instead of the usual seven. This program was incredibly beneficial to me and proved to be a great conversation starter in interviews. It definitely helped 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 were invaluable to me in my journey at law school. They were 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. The next summer, I interned with the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) in Manhattan representing low income New Yorkers in government benefits cases. Pace Law helped me to succeed and realize my goals on my legal career path.
