The Boston Business Journal reports today that the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover has asked state officials for permission to open an undergraduate college, to be called the Massachusetts College of History and Law. The combined college and law school would enable students to earn a law degree in six years. Undergrads who achieve a 3.2 GPA would be allowed to start law school after their junior year.
