This program is designed for those students who are employed or otherwise occupied for most of their time, and who are able to devote only a portion of their time to the study of law. The completion of this program requires four academic years and one or two summer sessions of residence. Part-time students are admitted for evening courses.

Students may be allowed to enroll in day classes if space is available.
