Part-Time Evening Program: Meet the Weekday Warriors

Our history as a law school began with us being solely an evening program that educated working professionals to become attorneys. Today, with over 100 years of training lawyers under our belt, our part-time evening program is still going strong.

Students in our part-time evening program attend classes Monday through Thursday with classes starting no earlier than 5:30pm. As they progress through upper-division years, part-time students have the option of continuing classes in the evening or taking classes during the day as their schedule allows. The part-time program is structured to complete in four years - just one year more than the full-time program. Some students even complete the program in as little as three and a half years.
