TEMPE, AZ - Arizona State University's law school is creating a North American Law Degree to prepare graduates to practice in the U.S. and Canada.
School officials say it will expand the job market for new attorneys and creating new opportunities for international law practice.
The North American Law Degree will allow students to graduate within three years.
The degree is designed to allow grads to immediately seek licensure in Canada without further coursework, in addition to qualifying them for bar admission in the U.S.
The dean of ASU's College of Law --Douglas Sylvester -- is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada and a graduate of both Canadian and U.S. schools of higher education.
He believes the degree will be an invaluable opportunity for future attorneys.
