The only accredited law degree program of its kind, Touro Law provides a supportive, flexible environment that allows students to attend in-person class on Sundays and complete the rest of their coursework when and where it fits their schedules. New for fall 2024 is a Flextime program at Touro’s new Manhattan campus at 3 Times Square.
If you’re interested in law school, but spending three years as a full time student is not feasible, there’s a new way to fulfill your career goal. As of the coming school year, Touro University is offering its FlexTime JD Program at the school’s new, state-of-the-art Cross River Campus at 3 Times Square in Manhattan. Previously available only at the Long Island Campus, the FlexTime JD Program is designed for law students with work, family and or Torah study commitments that prevent them from attending law school full time. Ninety-five percent of admitted students receive generous scholarships to Touro Law, and the FlexTime JD Program can be completed in four years or less.
FlexTime students attend in-person classes only on Sundays and complete the balance of this coursework on an asynchronous schedule throughout the week on their own time. Students in Touro’s FlexTime program earn their degrees in only four years and are eligible to sit for the New York State Bar Exam. The new FlexTime program is fully accredited by the American Bar Association.
“The new program at Touro’s Times Square campus welcomes young men in Kollel who have earned their bachelor’s in Talmudic Law, women who have left the workforce to raise families and other non-traditional students,” said Jim Montes, Assistant Dean for the Office of Career & Professional Development. “Situated in the heart of New York City, the new FlexTIme Program at the Manhattan branch of Touro Law will leverage its location at the epicenter of the world’s largest and most sophisticated legal market. A Board of Advisors compromised of distinguished lawyers and practitioners will help foster interactive opportunities and pro bono activities, and will serve as mentors to students, enhancing their career opportunities.”
A Variety of Careers Benefit from Law Degree
Graduates of the program are enjoying success in careers that require a law degree and where having a law degree is an advantage. A law degree can advance careers in related fields including compliance, financial planning, real estate, health care, law enforcement, public policy, diplomacy and more.
“FlexTime graduates have a variety of career goals. Many are already employed full-time while they are attending law school and are looking to enhance their skills and advance within that same company. Others are looking to change careers altogether and enter the legal field upon graduation. It is a refreshing mix of students who are all dedicated to earning their law degree in a non-traditional way to meet their unique goals,” said Montes.
The only accredited law degree program with in-person requirements exclusively on Sundays, FlexTime also fully integrates students into the fabric of the law school. FlexTime students have the opportunity to become involved in every aspect of law school life including clinics, pro bono activities, student organizations, and honor societies including Law Review, Moot Court, and Trial Advocacy Practice Society.
