A solid legal education is always demanding, but it should also be exciting, challenging, and an investment in your own and society's future. This is a law school where students, faculty and alumni find doors wide open to pursue their professional goals in D.C. and around the world.

The J.D. (Juris Doctor) is a three year (full-time) or four year (part-time) program that first gives students the intellectual foundations for legal study, and then gives them the opportunity to focus their studies on areas of particular interest through advanced classes, clinics, and writing projects.
