A flexible evening JD program to meet your needs, offered in Jacksonville, Florida.

Earn your JD at Night

Earning your law degree at night is a way to attend law school while maintaining a work-life balance. Florida Coastal School of Law offers a Part Time Evening Program designed for students who are unable or prefer not to enroll during the day. For many working professionals, attending law school at night presents a financially feasible and flexible way to earn a Juris Doctor (JD) degree.

Students in our Part Time Evening JD program will have convenient access to full-time student amenities, including academic success, bar exam support, career counseling and experiential learning opportunities. Likewise, part-time students are eligible to participate in student organizations, including moot court, mock trial, and law review.

Attending Law School Part Time in the Evening

Our law school's evening program will lead to a JD degree with the same requirements as the Full Time and Part Time Day Programs. The night program is designed to be completed in four years; however, per Coastal Law policy, students have six years to complete the course of study and graduate. View schedule.

Classes will be offered Monday through Thursday evening between the hours of 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. All courses required for graduation will be offered during evening hours, and we also offer a separate evening orientation. 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.

Enrollment into the Part Time Evening Program is available only in the Fall semester.
The application process, admissions criteria, and graduation process are the same as the JD Full Time program. Applicants interested in the part time evening option should indicate their interest on the application form.

A Part Time Program with a Full Time Focus on You

No matter what you did before law school -- regardless of whether this will be your first, second, third or maybe fourth career -- our program will boost your career. The American Bar Association rules prevent full-time students from working more than 20 hours per week; however, part-time evening students are not subject to these restrictions, allowing them to continue working while pursuing a degree. If you are currently employed, check to see if your existing job has a tuition waiver program for employees attending college.

If the Part Time Evening Program sounds like it could be a good match for you, make an appointment with the admissions office so questions related specific to your circumstances can be answered. We will partner with you to see which option will work best for you. You may also take a tour in the late afternoon or on Saturdays, and we also invite you to sit in on an evening class to see if it is for you.
