3-Year Part-Time Schedule (year round)

3-Year Part-Time schedule (year-round)

Attend law school part-time for three years (36 months). This schedule is the most popular choice among WMU-Cooley students. This schedule allows students to graduate in three years by taking 9-12 credits a semester, year-round. Many students find that this schedule creates a perfect balance between completing their degree in a typical three years but with time to participate in externships, extra-curricular activities, and co-curricular activities throughout the year to achieve a well-rounded law school experience. This program option is often great for students who work or have other personal obligations.
