Take a Peek into UH Law School’s Accessible Part-Time/Evening Program

October 25, 2012

        Join us for an information session on October 25 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Classroom 1 at the William S. Richardson School of Law, 2515 Dole Street, Honolulu.  Learn what it takes to keep your day job – and earn a law degree through the William S. Richardson School of Law’s Part-Time/Evening JD program.
        Program director Liam Skilling calls the evening option “a chance for mid-career professionals to switch career paths.  Students bring the skills they’ve already developed into the classroom to enhance the learning for all.”
        Law Dean Avi Soifer notes that the program reflects the belief of the late CJ Richardson, for whom the Law School is named, by guaranteeing opportunities for people in Hawai‘i who may otherwise not have the chance for a legal education.
        The October 25 session will include:
- An overview of the program.
- An explanation of the law school admissions process.
- A discussion with current students.
      The Part-Time/Evening JD program was launched in 2008 and tailored to meet the needs of students who have professional, financial, or family obligations that make it tough to go to Law School full-time.
        The course load is adjusted for these needs. Students who maximize their credits each semester and take some additional credits during summers or J-Terms can graduate from the Evening Part-Time JD program in four years.
