New York Law School established one of the nation’s first evening division programs to enable working professionals and those with family obligations to pursue a law degree. Today, we continue to innovate with the launch of our new Accelerated Two-Year J.D. Honors Program, which takes the traditional curriculum and compresses it into a two-year span—and reduces the cost of tuition by a third. Learn more about the Two-Year Accelerated Honors Program here.
Our Evening Division is a part-time, four-year course of study designed for working professionals and others who may not be able to attend our traditional three-year J.D. program.
We are located in TriBeCa, the heart of New York City’s legal, financial, government, and emerging tech districts—convenient to every major subway line, and within walking distance of both Wall Street and City Hall. We have long benefited from a proximity to, and partnership with, these economic centers. And what happens in New York City—in law and business, in media and tech—matters everywhere. We also offer state-of-the-art classrooms and collaborative learning spaces. Simply put, New York Law School is a vibrant, diverse school that has given opportunities to countless students to reach their goals in every sector of the economy.
Evening students are fully integrated into the NYLS law student community—participating in academic advancement opportunities, including the Law Review and moot court; in student groups; and in other curricular opportunities, including clinics and externships.
Our administration is committed to supporting our evening students—as such, we have extended office hours and added late appointment opportunities for key administrative offices, and we encourage evening students to utilize the law school’s resources to support them in their professional endeavors.
