Coastal Law's Accelerated 2-Year J.D. Degree Program enables students to complete their legal studies in two years. The program allows participating students to complete the same number of credit hours as a traditional three-year J.D. students, but are able to reduce living expenses by a third and enter the workforce sooner.

While this accelerated program means students have a more set schedule of classes, they also have opportunities to select from the full range of electives offered by Coastal Law, are eligible to be invited in the Coastal Law Honors Society, and can participate in experiential learning opportunities.

Students who wish to begin in our 2-Year Program must plan ahead since we only enroll in the Spring term. Classes begin for this program in late January. Students interested in this program should take the LSAT early, but we will accept through the December LSAT for the 2-year program.

Reasons Why Students Choose Our Accelerated 2-Year J.D. Degree Program:

  • Enter the workforce sooner
  • Save a full year of living expenses
  • Smaller first semester classes and more personal attention from your professors
