NYLS Pro: Part-Time Evening Division
For more than 130 years, we’ve served a diverse body of students as they build on their current professional experiences or begin second careers in our Evening Division. In 2022, NYLS introduced NYLS Pro, a bold, new vision that reimagines our evening program to make it more accessible, flexible, and affordable. NYLS Pro is tailored to the specific needs of 21st century professionals who balance work, home, and school—which means more avenues to law degrees for New Yorkers and beyond.
The Redesigned NYLS Pro: An Evening Legal Education With Maximum Flexibility
NYLS Pro’s new structure provides a rigorous legal education in a format that meets the needs of working professionals. Our program embraces technology to afford maximum flexibility, providing a mix of in-person and remote courses. Students take the same required classes taught by the same faculty as all other students, ensuring the high-quality NYLS experience.
NYLS Pro students continue to benefit from dedicated and enhanced career counseling and academic support, full access to the New York Law School Law Review and all NYLS competition teams, and the opportunity to participate in the Dean’s Leadership Council and all student affinity groups.
Academic planning and professional development are seamlessly integrated at NYLS. Every NYLS Pro student works with a counselor to discuss class schedules, set career goals, explore internship and post-graduation opportunities, and address individual advising questions.
The Structure of NYLS Pro
NYLS Pro students can earn their degrees over the course of eight 14-week-long semesters.
