J.D. Schedule Options

Our schedule options 

Law school is challenging, and it should be; but you may need a schedule to fit your busy life. We offer a variety of schedule options to fit the way you live and work. You can choose from several traditional law school options, or jump into an accelerated two-year option if you’re on the fast track to starting your legal career. From full-time to part-time, and evenings and weekends, our schedule options include:

  • Traditional
  • Three-year part-time
  • Four-year part-time
  • Five-year part-time
  • Weekend/evening
  • Two-year accelerated 

You also have the option to enter law school when it’s right for you — in September, January, or May. We have a “rolling admissions” process, which means we process law school applications when they’re received. Even if you have a full-time job, kids’ soccer games to attend, or other responsibilities, chances are, we have a schedule option for you. Click below to learn more.
