Attending CUNY Law School Part-Time

Beginning in fall 2015, you can attend CUNY Law part-time to earn your J.D. on your own schedule. This ensures that even more students are able to get the legal tools they need to advocate for their communities, while balancing families and careers.

Classes and Credits for the Part-Time Program

In our part-time program, you will engage in our unique curriculum that provides experiential learning beginning on day one.

Through a combination of required and elective courses, lawyering seminars, and required participation in a clinic or concentration, you will gain the skills and tools you need to hit the ground running and to make a difference for your clients and communities.

Over the course of eight semesters and one summer, you will take 86 credits-including participation in a clinic or concentration-to earn your J.D.

Evening Classes for a Flexible Schedule

Twilight and evening classes are available, and, after your first year, you are also able to take classes during the day to make a flexible schedule that works for you. Evening classes are typically scheduled between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Evening classes are held from Monday to Thursday. There are currently no weekend classes.
