A quick Google search would have revealed to you what every Kansas resident and every lover of college basketball already knew. It's the Univeristy of Kansas.

Reducing tuition and the time spent obtaining the necessary degrees is laudable. However, I don't think this is the way to go about it. The student would have to apply for the program before beginning college. Very few college freshmen are ready or knowledgeable enough to begin the law school track. Also, what happens if they don't get accepted into the law school program? Does this program guarantee acceptance?

As does Baylor University, and has for many years.

And Nebraska is the next state over, so they can just motor on over there after graduation, and won't even have to ride in the ABA cattle cars with the newbies from the coasts.

Sweet. This ought to help with the shortage of young grads with law degrees out there.
