CSUN and Law School Offer 6 Year Program

 

As law schools continue to roil in the bludgeoning legal market we’ve seen since the Great Recession, more and more schools have resorted to tricks, gimmicks, tuition cuts, and so forth. This is in full keeping: how else to keep competitive when enrollment is down 12 percent? One such incentive program is the one California State University has agreed to with Southwestern Law School. The 3+3 program will let the fourth year of the undergraduate program overlap with the first year of the JD, so the students can effectively get a seven year program done in six.

 

After all, there isn’t much budging on the 3 years of the JD program, though Barack Obama has opined that law school could be slimmed to a 2 year program. With the ABA being what it is, and the standards it sets being what they are, there isn’t much wiggle room in establishing a 2 year JD. Creative universities, therefore, attempt other methods.

“I’m pleased CSUN is partnering with Southwestern to give students who are committed to pursuing a career in law an opportunity to get a head start on achieving their goals,” said CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison in CSUN Today.

 

There is no indication that the students will be better educated because of this, but they will at least save some money, and in today’s market, with half of JDs unemployed after 9 months, such reduction in tuition debt matters.
