Full-time program

The way most students traditionally earn a law degree. You have two options to begin your first-year studies:

Summer (June) entry

  • Reduce your fall-course load by completing a Criminal Law class during a six-week summer term
  • Classes are offered at convenient times for those with summer jobs
  • Provides an opportunity to get a head-start on learning essential legal skills, which will help you in your fall courses.

Fall (August) entry

  • Chosen by most entering students
  • 15 credits of courses are taken in both fall and spring semesters to complete your first-year legal studies over a traditional nine-month academic year
  • Classes are typically held 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday

Duration – 3 years (2.5 years if you complete courses during summers)
