Bloomberg Law Names Washburn Law’s Third Year Anywhere Option Among Top Programs in Student Innovation and Development

Washburn Law's Third-Year-Anywhere Program Recipient of 2022 Bloomberg Law School Innovation Program Honors

Washburn Law's Third Year Anywhere® program makes Washburn one of the top law schools in the country for student innovation and development, according to Bloomberg Law.

Bloomberg Law (a leader among research platforms providing comprehensive legal information and analysis for the legal profession) this year conducted a competitive process to identify the most innovative law schools in U.S. legal education. Washburn Law's Third Year Anywhere® enrollment option was judged to be one of the top eight programs in the category of "student innovation and development," putting Washburn Law among a group of schools that were found to be best for "pioneering student development in ways that improve the law school experience and foster career readiness."

Washburn Law's Third Year Anywhere® program allows a select group of students to spend their last year anywhere in the country, or indeed the world, working in an externship position under the supervision of a lawyer and conducting their courses online, thereby getting a head start on entering practice in the area of law and the jurisdiction in which they intend to work after graduation.
