- What about going to law school part time given my other commitments?
There is no question that, particularly as it pertains to many of our students, attending law school on a full-time basis is often an impossibility because of a myriad of other obligations. Therefore, the only viable option to pursue a legal education is to attend part time. On average, completing one's law studies on a part-time basis will add to one and one-half years to the usual three year required based on full-time studies, thus culminating in a total of 4 1/2 years for completion of the degree. Nevertheless, it is a very viable option for students who cannot attend full time. The level of instruction is the same for full-time or part-time students, and as the average law student age increases, more law schools will offer part-time studies.
