LEGAL EDUCATION UPDATE: UT program to allow students to earn law, bachelor’s degrees while saving full year of tuition. ” In the program, students complete three years of approved undergraduate coursework in the College of Arts and Sciences. Following their third year, participating students admitted to the College of Law become full-time, first-year law students. The first year of law study will count toward a student’s law degree and also toward the completion of his or her bachelor’s degree. Two additional years of law study follow, after which a student earns a juris doctor degree.” We’re not the first law school to do this, but I predict many more will follow suit.
