Drexel University announced today that it will launch a two-year law school program in 2014.
Dubbed "Fast Forward," the Earle Mack School of Law program claims to catapult students into the workforce a year early armed with the same skills typically obtained in a three-year program.
“Fast Forward offers highly motivated students an attractive option for completing their education and getting a head start on their careers,” said Roger Dennis, dean of the Earle Mack School of Law, in a news release.
The law school will recruit a smaller class of students for the three-year program moving forward, according to the news release.
Students enrolled in the program, which is set to launch in May 2014, can revert to the three-year schedule if the intense schedule becomes overwhelming.
