Dave Van Zandt does it again--Northwestern Law to offer the option of an accelerated two-year law degree
Dave Van Zandt, one of the true visionary law deans, has announced that Northwestern Law will offer an option for a two-year law degree (see here). The degree will be available for students with at least two years of prior work experience (which most Northwestern Law students already have--another Van Zandt trademark). I've been watching this law school for years, because I already like how it mixes law students and MBA students. (About the only thing on which Van Zandt and I disagree is the use of the USNWR rankings as a metric for measuring progress.) Keep an eye on this school. It continues to impress.
