• Part-time Weekend JD

    Pursue your degree while you work

    Life is busy. We know. As a working professional though, you recognize a law degree can help you reach your aspirations. Our part-time weekend JD program is the perfect way for you to earn your law degree in just four years while keeping your day job. It is one of only two American Bar Association (ABA) accredited part-time weekend JD programs in the nation.

    You follow the same academic calendar as full-time law students, completing the curriculum during fall and spring semesters. You are not required to take classes during January or summer terms, and doing so does not necessarily expedite completion of your degree.

    The program includes:

    • Required courses taught by experienced, full-time professors
    • Access to most of the same services, learning opportunities, and extra-curricular activities available to full-time JD students
    • Classes on Saturdays and Sundays, 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m., in the fall and spring
    • Four classes each semester: one each morning and each afternoon on both days

    Weekend JD students come from many different industries and walks of life, giving you a rich learning environment and outstanding networking opportunities.

    Enrollment is limited and admission is selective.
