The University of Dayton's law school has become the first in the nation to offer a five-semester program, instead of the traditional six.
Until last year, the American Bar Association required six semesters, so the option Dayton is offering was impossible.

Students still have the option of a six-semester program.

Catharyn Baird has been a business professor at Regis University for 20 years, teaching in its undergraduate, MBA, and online programs.
