Professional by Day, Student by Night
It is true that law school is a life changing, demanding experience. But you don’t have to completely put your life on hold to earn a JD. The Evening Program at Western New England University School of Law offers the perfect balance: the credential you need for a rewarding career on a schedule that fits your active life.
Western New England University has been offering part-time legal instruction for over 90 years. In that time we’ve guided thousands of working professionals from their previous jobs to a fascinating and meaningful career in the law. Our part-time program has also helped countless others advance their existing careers by providing an opportunity to earn an advanced degree in a manageable program without sacrificing quality.
The Evening Program’s curriculum is identical to the full-time program, but spread over four years. Full-time professors teach all of your required courses as well as many of your electives. Evening students are still required to meet all of the rigorous standards to which we hold our full-time students.
Close and Convenient
Our location is an easy drive from Hartford, Albany, Worcester, Providence, or anywhere in between. Our beautiful campus provides plenty of well-lit parking adjacent to the Blake Law Center.
The School of Law schedules classes in the early evening to give you plenty of time to arrive from work. Typical first-year classes meet Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday for about three hours a night. Your professors are extremely understanding of the professional, family, and personal commitments you have outside of the classroom and will work with you to help you meet all of your academic goals.
