You’ve considered law school for a long time, but quitting your job and attending school full-time has always made that dream an impossible one. At Arizona Summit Law School, creating opportunities for those who are passionate about the law to begin their law school education is part of our mission. We are proud to offer the only part-time, evening JD program in the state, and even more proud to help you make your career and education dreams a tangible reality right now.
Our part-time evening option allows students to continue their full- or part-time employment, while attending law school in the evenings. The program offers the same innovative, quality instruction by highly-qualified, acclaimed faculty, with a schedule that works for your life right now.
How It Works
Similar to our part-time day program, students in our part-time evening program attend classes between 6:00 and 10:00 pm, five days per week. Earning between 9 and 11 credits per term (two terms per calendar year, plus an optional summer session once all first year classes are completed) you’ll be able to complete the 87 credits required for graduation in a minimum of three to four years, depending on your course load.
The program offers the same robust, quality education that students in our part-time day and full-time day JD programs enjoy, with opportunities to participate in law review and other co- and extra-curricular activities which serve to enrich your law school experience.
Our next available session to enroll in the part-time evening JD program begins in the Fall 2017, September 5, 2017. To learn more on how to apply, click here.
IN MY OWN WORDS | KYLE FIELDS '15, LAW CLERK, ARIZONA SUPREME COURT, TIED FOR HIGHEST BAR SCORE IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA IN JULY 2014
“I am grateful for Arizona Summit Law School’s part-time evening program because it gave me and other working professionals an opportunity to attend law school. But more importantly, Summit Law’s approach helped me develop deeper genuine relationships. Throughout the ebb and flow of law school, the faculty took time to remind us of the higher calling in the practice of law—having authentic relationships with everyone and serving those who society overlooks. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to serve our state by serving on the bench one day.”
