Central Islip, N.Y. – Touro Law Center and the University of Central Florida (UCF) are pleased to announce the creation of a three-plus-three accelerated law program. This newly established academic program will offer significant advantages to interested, qualifying students. The program will provide the opportunity to qualified UCF students to seamlessly complete a UCF Legal Studies B.A. or B.S. and a Touro Law Center J.D. degree in six rather than seven years.

“We are thrilled to launch this program, which has many benefits for students,” said Touro Law Dean Patricia Salkin. “In addition to providing committed and qualified students with the benefit of earning both degrees in six years, these students also enjoy the prestige of being part of the program and save a year’s worth of tuition and time.”

The three-plus-three program will be available to students entering UCF as of the Fall 2014 class. Admission to the program will be determined by personnel at both UCF and Touro Law. Participants in the program will complete the first three years of study at UCF and the fourth year in residence at Touro Law Center as part of the first year of law school.    

 “This is an exciting opportunity for UCF and Touro Law. Many of our undergraduate students want to pursue a law degree. This gives them an opportunity to earn their degree from UCF in a concentrated three years and then enter a great New York law school to continue their legal education and training,” said Michael Frumkin, dean of UCF’s College of Health & Public Affairs.

Students interested in the program should contact the UCF admissions office at (407) 823-3000 or by email at admission@ucf.edu.
