Students enrolled in the full-time program must be able to devote full-time to their legal studies and may not work more than 15 hours per week during the academic year. Students carry 14 credits each semester in their first year and complete the required 84 credits in three years.
Students who are unable to devote full-time to their legal studies may enroll in the part-time day or evening program. Students enrolled in the part-time evening program should be prepared to attend classes on all weekday evenings, Monday through Thursday. In the first three terms, classes typically met three evenings per week, but thereafter attendance may be necessary on four evenings per week.
Part-time students carry 10 credits per semester during the first year. Both full- and part-time programs are subject to the same admission and academic standards and are taught by the same faculty. The part-time program requires four years of study which includes attendance for at least one summer session in order to complete the 84 credit hour requirement for graduation. After completing their first year, students may transfer freely between the full-time and the part-time programs. However, students enrolled in the full-time program must be able to devote full-time to their legal studies and may not work more than 15 hours per week during the academic year.
