From the National Jurist preLaw:
Charlotte School of Law has joined forces with Johnson C. Smith University to offer students a bachelor and law degree in six years, instead of the traditional seven.
High-performing JCSU students with an interest in law will be recruited to be a part of the program. Candidates must have a minimum SAT score of 900 and a minimum GPA of 3.0.
Students will follow a curriculum pace that allows them to complete their bachelor degree minus major electives. At the end of their junior year, qualified students can enter the law program at Charlotte Law, but must complete the bachelor degree by the end of August following the first year of law school.
Many years ago, students could attend law school after two years of college. Is the past repeating itself? Will we see other schools following Charlotte’s example? Stay tuned.
