Whittier Law School recognizes that work and family obligations limit some students’ ability to participate in a traditional full-time day law program. To accommodate such students, Whittier Law School offers a part-time day program. Students normally complete the part-time day program in four years. Part-time students must enroll in eight to eleven credit hours each semester. Many take additional credit hours during summer term. Part-time day program classes generally meet two or three days a week.
