Albany Law School to Offer a 2-Year JD Program

Accelerated JD program to launch in January 2017

New York's Albany Law School will launch a two-year JD program next year.

The new program, which cuts one year off of a traditional three-year JD, will save students both time and tuition money. 

According to the school, the program will hold a particular appeal for older students.

“There are applicants who are driven to obtain a legal education and apply it to the job market as soon as possible,” says Alicia Ouellette, Albany Law's dean. “This particularly applies to older students who left the workforce to pursue their passion for the law."

Students can start in either January or May. The program is 24 months long and includes study during two summer sessions. 

The new two-year JD is set to launch in January. International students are welcome to apply; application details and criteria were not immediately available.
