ALBANY -- Albany Law School and Siena College announced a new program for students to earn an undergraduate and law degree in five years.

The program, which is now accepting applications, allows students to earn a bachelor's degree at Siena in any field before moving straight into a law degree program. Officials from the two colleges called it a "3+2" program -- three years for an undergraduate degree and two years for the law degree. 

The accelerated program will require students to enroll in extra coursework each semester and over the summer as they acquire credits on an accelerated timeline. Students accepted into the program their freshman year at Siena will also earn an acceptance to Albany Law contingent on meeting its enrollment requirements. 

Officials at the schools said only one similar program existed in the country, a program shared between the University of Vermont and Vermont Law School.
