Joint Degrees

Keeping legal education relevant requires offering more than one traditional law degree. To broaden perspectives or to help prepare for careers in special fields, Cumberland School of Law students have the option to pursue eight different joint-degrees. Five programs are offered in conjunction with other schools at Samford University. Two are offered in association with the University of Alabama at Birmingham [UAB], an internationally recognized academic and research medical center, and one is offered with Albany Medical College.

Applications must be made during the spring semester of the first-year of law school. To be admitted to joint-degree programs, students must have completed their first-year of law school, earned a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 and satisfied the particular joint-degree program’s admission requirements.
