Day Program students must successfully complete six semesters or three academic years for their degree requirements. Acceptance of an offer of admission to the Day Program represents a commitment to the full-time study of law. Any significant employment or involvement outside the School of Law is inconsistent with that commitment. Under American Bar Association Standard 305 (a)(iii), a student may not work in excess of twenty hours per week while attending a law school on a full-time basis.
Day Program classes normally meet between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekdays in the fall and spring semesters. Some specialized Day Program courses may meet in the evening hours. Clinical litigation courses are offered during the fall and spring semesters and during the summer. A Day Program student may enroll in a regular or summer session Evening Program course with permission from the Dean, if there is space available.
