Seattle University School of Law lets you choose the program that's right for you. In addition to our Full-Time JD Program, we offer a Flex JD Program for working professionals, a Master of Laws (LLM) in American Legal Studies and Technology and Innovation, a variety of Master of Legal Studies (MLS) tracks, and a two-year JD for foreign-trained lawyers. You can choose to start your studies in the summer or fall and can take classes during the day or in the evening. Also, as a part of our holistic admission process, our Access Admission Program is available to select students who don't meet traditional admission criteria but show great promise for success in our JD programs.
