JD Admissions

With our nationally recognized clinics, trial advocacy and legal writing programs, one of the largest externship programs in the country and an ever-growing offering of problem- and simulation-based capstone courses, Denver Law is a leader in training skilled lawyers who are practice-ready and prepared to hit the ground running

We are committing to helping JD students focus on what matters to them, their interests and their career. Denver Law's curriculum includes several substantive areas of specialization, designed to allow our students to tailor their education to their passions and career goals. In addition, our online and on-campus professional part-time JD program allows students to earn a degree on their schedule, maximize their time and build their future. 


Important Update

In response to COVID-19 concerns, much of the University of Denver staff will be working remotely, including Sturm College of Law's Admission staff. 

Our Admissions Team will still be available to respond to any question you may have. You can contact your individual counselor via email or email admissions@law.du.edu with any inquiries. Thank you for your understanding.

Legal Education for the 21st Century

Professional Part-Time JD Program

US News & World Report_part time JD program

Denver Law’s Part-Time JD program—ranked #10 by U.S. News & World Report—is one of the oldest in the country. Throughout our history, innovations in teaching and new understandings about learning have played a central role in our curriculum delivery. The technology available to us today allows for a convenient, but no less effective, method of instruction that provides access to legal education for people with professional and personal commitments that make the traditional full-time program unworkable. 

You can now balance your career and family, as well as earn your degree online on your time (one-third of the curriculum) and in on-campus classes every other weekend.
