The Union College-Albany Law School combined program allows students to complete a full Union B.S. or B.A. degree in three years and subsequently progress to Albany Law School. The program provides opportunities to earn undergraduate credit through law-related internships and participate as undergraduates in Albany Law School activities designed for combined degree program students. Students in this program, who will be known as Law Scholars, will be admitted to Albany Law School early (upon admission to Union) with entry to law school contingent on their undergraduate GPA, but not their LSAT score. Students are still required to take the LSAT prior to matriculation at Albany Law School, with high scores providing access to scholarship opportunities.
