Part-Time Juris Doctor (JD) Program

On-Campus Degree

The Part-Time Juris Doctor (JD) degree, offered exclusively on campus, gives you the option of taking courses during the day or evenings. The part-time program is a flexible education option for professionals who wish to remain employed while they study law part-time. You will complete the same rigorous program as full-time students and learn from the same law professors, but because part-time students take fewer hours each semester compared to full-time students, you have increased flexibility to select courses that fit within your personal and professional schedules. Part-time law school students will generally be able to earn their JD in four to five calendar years.

  • Enroll in a minimum of 8 credit hours and a maximum of 12 credit hours per semester.
  • Focus on legal analysis, writing, and problem solving.
  • Explore classic texts in history, philosophy, and theology, and gain an appreciation of the biblical foundations of the law and legal institutions of the United States.

Career Opportunities:

Upon completion of all program requirements and passing of the bar examination, accelerated Juris Doctor program graduates are eligible for positions involving administrative law/regulated industries, constitution and public law, corporate and commercial law, family law, health law, intellectual property, international law, legal theory and history, legal history, litigation, property/real estate, taxation, wills, and trusts.
