Eckerd College and FSU College of Law Join Together in New Accelerated Law Program

Florida State University College of Law

Summary: An Accelerated Law Program will be implemented at Florida State University College of Law, allowing students to complete both an undergraduate degree and a law degree in six years.

Prospective Florida attorneys may be able to shave a year off of their education thanks to a new program created by Florida State University College of Law and Eckerd College.

WCTV.tv reveals the program is called the Accelerated Law Program and allows college juniors to complete both a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in six years instead of the typical seven years, if the juniors qualify for admission to the program. This will also save students a significant amount of money, as it will be one less year of purchasing books and paying for tuition.

Florida State University Dean Donald Weidner stated, “I am delighted about our new relationship with Eckerd’s outstanding academic programs. In short, under this program, the first year of law school is double-counted: that is, it is credited to both the law degree and to the undergraduate degree. The result is that students and/or their families save the entire cost of the fourth year of college.”

Suzan Harrison, Eckerd’s Dean of Faculty, added “Eckerd College is excited to offer our students this opportunity. This saves them a year of tuition and moves them forward in their professional ambitions more quickly.”

Students who are interested in the abbreviated program should meet with their mentors at Eckerd College to begin planning their curriculum accordingly. Eckerd College mentors will assist these students so that they successfully complete the program.

Other schools with similar programs for college students include the University of Central Florida and Florida State University.
