PART-TIME PROGRAM

The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law offers a part-time program which enables students to enroll in fewer hours than full-time students. This is not an evening program - part-time students attend classes during the day with full-time students. Students are not able to choose the day and time of courses.

By attending classes during the fall, spring, and summer semesters, part-time students will normally graduate in four and one-half years. Graduation requirements in the part-time program are the same as the full-time program. A part-time student is required to enroll in 8 to 11 hours each semester, for a total of 90 law hours. Part-time students may not request a transfer to the full-time program until they have completed the first-year curriculum.

The applicant may check the "part-time" box on the application or, after an offer of admission is received, the applicant can submit (by mail or e-mail) a written request to attend part-time. Only 10% of the entering class of 150 may enroll part-time. All applicants interested in attending part-time should submit an additional statement discussing why they are unable to enroll full-time. Decisions on part-time admission typically are finalized in mid-July.

As an example of class scheduling for part-time students, below are the fall 2015 classes for first-, second- and third-year part-time students:
