Coastal Law offers a Part-Time Evening (PTE) Program that is designed for students who are unable or prefer not to enroll full-time. For many working professionals, this program presents a financially feasible and flexible way to earn a law degree. In addition, PTE students will have convenient access to full-time student amenities, including academic success, bar exam support, career counseling and experiential learning opportunities. Likewise, students in the program are eligible to participate in student organizations, including moot court, mock trial, and law review.
The program will lead to a Juris Doctor degree with the same requirements as the Full-Time and Part-Time Day Programs. The program is designed to be completed in 4 years, however per Coastal Law Policy students have 6 years to complete the course of study and graduate. Enrollment into the Part-Time Evening Program is available only in the Fall semester.
Classes will be offered Monday through Thursday evening between the hours of 6:00pm-9:00pm. All courses required for graduation will be offered during evening hours. In addition a broad selection of elective courses needed for graduation will be offered as well.
Per ABA standards, full-time professors will teach all evening required courses. Professors will be recruited first via a volunteer request protocol and then on a mandatory rotational basis if required.
