The course of study in the full-time day division requires three academic years and usually includes five days of classroom attendance per week and 14-15 units per semester in fall and spring. Full-time students cannot be employed for more than twenty hours per week outside of law school. The faculty recommends that first-year full-time students not work at all outside of law school.
To accommodate the needs of working adults or others who cannot devote themselves to the full-time study of law, the College of Law offers a part-time evening program. The part-time evening program requires four academic years of study. Students generally complete 8-11 units per semester and enroll in summer courses. A typical part-time program includes classroom attendance from three to four evenings per week, and may, during some semesters, include class attendance up to four hours per night.
