The four-year evening program is designed for those who wish to obtain their legal education while working full time or who have other obligations during the day. Students in the evening program take required courses during the first four semesters and choose from a limited number of electives during the third and fourth semesters. After completion of the fourth semester, the full range of electives is open to evening division students. In addition, evening students must take Advanced Legal Research in either the third or fourth year, and fulfill the Advanced Writing (“cert”) requirement. After the first year, evening students typically register for 10 or 11 credits in each semester, which may result in students attending two, three or four nights per week. After the first year, evening students may enroll in day division electives, although day division students have priority. Evening courses are generally scheduled Monday through Thursday beginning at 6:30 pm but evening students often take late afternoon courses as well. Evening students have enrollment priority for courses taught during the evening. Evening and day students have equal priority for “twilight” courses.
To facilitate the building of the evening division community, first and second year evening students will take some of their classes together.
