The University of Iowa College of Law has established a new program which will enable students to begin law school after three years of undergraduate study. After six years, the student will have a J.D. degree, and credits earned in the first year of law school will count toward an undergraduate degree.
The school says this is not for everyone, but rather only for the "right" students.
Not only will the right students save a year of college tuition, they will also be able to look for work as Starbucks baristas a year sooner than law school graduates who spend four years getting their undergraduate degrees.
