Samford, Tuskegee partner in new program for law students

A half-dozen Tuskegee University students stuck in Liberia because of the Ebola outbreak won't be returning to the United States for nearly two more weeks.

 

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Samford University and Tuskegee University are joining in a partnership that will let students shave one year off the time needed to earn a law degree. 

A joint announcement says undergraduate students will be able to earn a bachelor’s degree from Tuskegee and a law degree from Samford’s Cumberland School of Law in six years rather than seven under the new program.

Samford is a Christian school located near Birmingham, and Tuskegee is a historically black school east of Montgomery.

The partnership allows some coursework to apply for both a undergraduate and a graduate degree.
