CUA Law has a thriving Part-time Evening Division J.D. Program. Designed around the needs of working professionals looking to complement their current careers or beginning a new one, all classes meet between 6:30 and 9:30 pm, Monday through Thursday.
The evening division's diversity features students who are professionals from many industries and backgrounds. They hold various degrees such as Ph.D’s, M.D.’s, Masters, and Bachelors. Some have always wanted to work towards a law degree, while others found a law degree would help open new career opportunities for themselves. And in some cases they are individuals who have focused on raising a family and have now decided to work on their career.
The Part-time Evening Division J.D. Program takes four years to complete and having time management skills is a plus. CUA Law features a supportive faculty and staff to help students with the adjustment of managing their law school experience and their full-time job. Students enrolled in the evening division are required to at least 11 semester credit hours and no less than 8 semester credit hours. In order to be eligible for graduation students enrolled in the evening division must complete 84 semester credit hours.
Students who are part of the Evening Division are invited to participate in the various Student Organizations at CUA Law. There is also an Evening Law Students Association (ELSA), which was founded in 1993 to represent our evening-division students and promote their extracurricular activities, address their special academic concerns, and enhance their legal education. ELSA works to encourage equitable access to all academic and extracurricular activities for evening law students, as well as sponsoring academic and social programs. To contact ELSA, e-mail: ELSA@law.edu.
The Office of Career and Professional Development maintains evening hours during the academic school year to provide counseling for evening division students. OCPD summer hours are by appointment only. Advocacy for the Elderly is currently the only clinic offered to evening division students. Students enrolled in the evening division may participate in other clinics and externships based upon the students flexibility. Please note that participation in day activities will require the student to make the appropriate arrangements with their employer.
