A planned law and history college that is gearing up to open its doors to students in August has taken another step in that direction with the launch of its Web site. To be based in Salem, N.H., the American College of History and Legal Studies will be an undergraduate “completion college,” offering only junior- and senior-year courses.

As I noted when I wrote about the planned college last June at Legal Blog Watch, the college is being launched by the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover. After students complete their junior year at the college, they will have the option of starting law school at MSL. They will receive their bachelor’s degrees after the first year of law school.

The college’s curriculum will focus exclusively on American history and legal history in the context of world history, the Web site says. MSL Dean Lawrence Velvel will also be the college’s dean.
