Over the past several years, the Part-Time Program, in collaboration with the Registrar’s Office, created a multi-year strategic plan for expanding offerings at night and on weekends that provide part-time students with a wide selection of curricular choices. The law school solicited input from its part-time student community through surveys and town hall meetings to determine the courses that they are interested in taking. AUWCL has taken care to provide sections of those courses, and in particular, experiential courses such as clinical offerings in the evenings, to provide part-time students with the necessary opportunities to develop their skills in a learning-by-doing format.
My students have let me know in no uncertain terms that there is nothing part-time about the work they put into their studies and activities here at the law school,” said Elizabeth Boals, assistant dean for part-time and online education. “We are focusing our efforts on ensuring that this amazing group of hard-working individuals have the same exceptional courses and experiences as their full-time counterparts. We have had a positive response to providing part-time students non-traditional course offerings on weekends, in intensive short courses, and online to answer the demands of their hectic schedules.”
