Top Stories

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.
