Program can be completed in as few as two years

The University of Hawaii at Manoa has recently announced that it will launch an Advanced JD program, aimed primarily at international attorneys, beginning this year.

Notably, the program will give foreign attorneys up to a year's credit for their foreign law degrees - allowing students to complete the degree in two years rather than three.

Graduates will have the option of taking the bar exam upon program completion.

Applications are being accepted until May.
