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.

Part-time students normally graduate in four or four-and-one-half years (including summer semesters). A part-time student is required to enroll in at least 8 hours, but no more than 11 hours, each semester, for a total of 90 hours.   

Graduation requirements in the part-time program are the same as the full-time program.  The current Academic Regulations are available here. In Fall 2019, the Memphis Law Faculty adopted a change in the courses that will be required for graduation. These changes are expected to go into effect for students enrolling in Fall 2021.
