Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law and Tuskegee University have partnered to offer Tuskegee undergraduate students an accelerated bachelor’s to Juris Doctor program. This partnership, more commonly known as a 3+3 partnership, creates a pathway for students to receive a bachelor’s degree from Tuskegee and a law degree from Cumberland in six years of study, rather than the traditional seven.

“We are extremely proud to partner with Tuskegee University to offer this new accelerated program. Tuskegee students are very involved in their prelaw program, and it just made sense to institute a formal agreement that substantiates the relationship which already exists,” said Whitney Dachelet, Cumberland School of Law assistant dean for Admission and Enrollment Management. “I look forward to seeing how this relationship grows over the coming years and watching even more Tuskegee/Cumberland students flourish in their careers.”

Currently, Tuskegee juniors who have completed all core and major requirements in political science will be able to use coursework from their first year of law school to fulfill the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.
