Program Options

Unlike many law schools, Arizona Summit Law School gives students with a range of backgrounds and responsibilities the opportunity to get a J.D. degree. Whether you’re a traditional student who can take on a full course load or need to take a non-traditional part-time day or evening path, we have a program for you.

For a side-by-side comparison of the full time, part-time day and part-time evening scheduling options, please see our program options below.
