Part-Time Law Degree Program - Day Division

Thinking of earning your Juris Doctor degree as a part-time law student? New England Law | Boston was founded in 1908 as a law school for women, and we have always endeavored to educate a diverse group of students. Today, the law school offers a network of connections across the country, built to help you launch your career.

Students in Class
Our part-time law school programs include a four year day program comprised of only a small number of students. Required part time law courses are taken during the first and second years, and 86 credits are required for graduation.
 
Graduates of our Juris Doctor program are in leadership positions in the best law firms, businesses, and agencies across the country. On campus, our faculty and student body are dedicated to helping you succeed.

Our faculty’s commitment to teaching excellence results in excellent preparation in foundational courses complemented by a wide variety of electives and specialized seminars. Students can concentrate and develop expertise in an array of legal fields, and our 16 clinics and three academic centers provide practical skills experiences and opportunities for policy research.

Students at New England Law work together in class, in study groups, playing baseball against the faculty, or involved in the many student organizations. To learn more, we invite you request a viewbook  and to visit the school and meet our community.

Law School Part-Time Programs

Our part time law degree programs also include a part-time, four year evening program, which lets you keep your day job and attend classes at night (New England Law is one of only two law schools in the Boston area with an evening division); and our Special Part-Time Program for parents with primary childcare responsibilities. This combination of day and evening classes allows students to arrange schedules that are more compatible with their child-care responsibilities.
