Amidst the ongoing national debate about law school affordability and the value of the 3L year, New York Law School announced it will offer a two-year J.D. honors program starting in January 2015. It is the first law school to launch a program that cuts the cost of a law degree to no more than two-thirds of a traditional degree. “We’re offering an innovative, accelerated honors J.D. program, requiring an exceptional commitment to year-round, intensive academic work,” said Dean Anthony Crowell. “The program focuses on key growth sectors of the city’s economy: business and financial services; government and public interest; and intellectual property, media, and technology,” the National Jurist reports.
