Massachusetts State Undergraduate and Law School Degree in 6 Years

Massachusetts Law Updates 2014-09-18

Fitchburg State University and the University of Massachusetts Law School have signed an agreement making it possible for motivated students, set on a career in law, to complete both degrees after three years spent studying at each institution.  Qualified students are guaranteed admission to UMASS Law and spend their senior undergraduate year in law school. Many students will not be ready to commit to a career as they begin undergraduate school.  Besides the obvious cost savings, there are other factors to consider when deciding on an accelerated J.D. program. Interested candidates should look carefully into what being a lawyer is really all about.  Introduction to the Study and Practice of Law in a Nutshell, is a lighthearted, but informative resource for those contemplating law school and a legal career.
