Global Campus meets the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

Are you interested in pursuing a career in law? Do you dream of one day standing in a crowded courtroom as you defend your client before a jury? What if there was a way to receive your law degree in six years instead of seven?
In 2015, TROY partnered with Thomas Goode Jones and Cumberland schools of law to become the only college in the state of Alabama to offer its students a way to complete their bachelor’s and Juris Doctor degrees within six years.
This is how it works. If you have aspirations to pursue a career in law, you will become a part of TROY’s College of Arts and Sciences where you will begin your academic journey pursuing a bachelor’s degree in social sciences with a minor in legal studies. In your junior year—upon the careful consideration of your GPA and LSAT scores—you will have the opportunity to apply to law school at Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery and Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham. Both programs are highly selective, and once chosen by one of the schools, you will begin your legal studies there.
After your first year of law school, your GPA at Jones or Cumberland will be evaluated, and if there are no objections, you will receive your bachelor’s degree from TROY as if you’d been attending our classes throughout your senior year. At this point, only two years of law school remain before you sit for the Alabama State Bar exam. Now, that’s a deal, and it can only be found at TROY.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that between 2012 and 2022, the job outlook for lawyers will increase by 10 percent—an average growth rate. According to the BLS, whether you’re hoping to represent individuals, businesses or government agencies on matters such as disputes and legal issues, you’ll encounter stiff competition in this highly competitive field. However, the effort you put into your education will eventually pay off. The BLS reports that as of 2012, the national median salary for a lawyer was $113,530 per year.
If at any point in your career you want to use your law school training in other ways, lawyers have found great success behind the gavel and lectern. In 2012, the BLS reported that the national median salary for judges or hearing officers was $102,980 per year. Likewise, the BLS reports show that as of 2013, the national median salary for postsecondary law teachers was $105,080 annually.
