Professional Part-Time JD Program

US News & World Report_part time JD program

Denver Law’s Part-Time JD program—ranked #16 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.
