Part-time students take a course load of 8-11 credits per semester and attend classes during the day, Monday through Friday, or in the evening, Monday through Thursday. We have four- and five-year part-time evening J.D programs. For the five-year part-time evening program, students are guaranteed a three evenings/week schedule for the first year. Students may also accelerate completion by attending summer sessions. For more information, please click here.
