Full-Time Day Program
Our J.D. program is both rigorous and comprehensive. The first year fosters a strong foundation in core legal subjects. Courses and concentrations in the second year and beyond provide opportunities for deep immersion in the theory and practice of law and the pursuit of sophisticated, high-demand specializations. Joint degree programs add new perspectives on complex problems..
Part-Time Day & Evening Programs
Toledo Law’s part-time evening and day programs allow working professionals and others the opportunity to earn a J.D. at their own pace. Courses are available during the evening and day for the fall, spring, and optional summer semesters. Part-time students typically take 9-10 credit hours a semester and complete their course of study in four years.
For more than a century, Toledo Law has offered a part-time evening program catering to students employed during the day. Part-time evening students take a structured curriculum of required courses during their first two years, and choose from a wide variety of upper-level courses during Years Three and Four and summer semesters. Courses are available four evenings a week, typically beginning at 6 p.m. and ending at 9:30 p.m., but evening students often take late afternoon and innovative weekend courses, too.
Some students prefer a flexible part-time day schedule. Students wishing to enroll in this program should consult with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to construct an appropriate course of study.
Two Year J.D. Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers
With our two-year J.D. program, highly qualified foreign-trained lawyers are eligible for up to 29 hours of advanced standing credit for law studies completed outside the U.S. With this credit, an international lawyer can earn a J.D. in two academic years rather than three. Unlike an LL.M., a J.D. degree from Toledo Law qualifies a graduate to take the bar exam in every state in the U.S.
The 3+3 Program is an innovative collaboration between the College of LLSS and the College of Law that allows students to earn both a bachelor of arts degree and a law degree in just six years instead of the usual seven. Visit the College of LLSS website for more information.
