Flexible Scheduling

Toledo Law allows you to customize your degree progression with full- and part-time programs with January or August start dates. Courses are available year-round — fall/spring semesters and optional summer session.

Full-Time Program

Our full-time J.D. program is both rigorous and comprehensive. Full-time students typically take 15 credit hours a semester and complete their course of study in three years (six semesters).


Part-Time Program

Toledo Law's part-time program allows working professionals and others the opportunity to earn a J.D. at their own pace. Part-time students typically take 8-10 credit hours a semester and complete their course of study in four years (eight to nine semesters).

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 in years three and four. Courses are available four evenings a week, typically beginning at 6 PM and ending at 9:30 PM, 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 a part-time day program should consult with our associate dean for academic affairs to construct an appropriate course of study.


Degree Requirements

Law students must complete 89 credit hours to earn a J.D. In addition to a variety of required courses, you may also select from a broad range of electives, including substantive law courses, legal clinics, simulation courses and field placements. Learn more by exploring our degree requirements.
