Since its founding in 1925, St. John’s School of Law has been committed to providing a legal education to a diverse population of students. Adults with substantial responsibilities need the flexibility that our part-time evening program offers them. Our evening students, whose numbers have included medical doctors and nurses; teachers; police, fire and military service officials; and parents raising children, bring diverse perspectives that enrich classroom discussions.
Our evening program has the same curriculum, taught by the same faculty, as our day program. Faculty make themselves available at convenient times so that you can benefit from their attention and guidance. Our academic centers schedule many of their events between day and evening classes in order to give all law students the chance to meet with distinguished speakers and guests. Evening students participate in our clinical, moot court, and trial advocacy programs. They are active in on-campus organizations and have demonstrated leadership in roles that include editor-in-chief of the St. John’s Law Review and president of the St. John’s Law Review and the Student Bar Association.
A part time program takes four years to complete and classes meet between 6:30 and 10:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays. First-year students attend classes four evenings per week. In their subsequent years, students have the flexibility to follow either a three-evening or four-evening schedule, depending on their individual work and family responsibilities.
One aspect that distinguishes St. John’s as a premier New York law school is our evening law school program.
