Four-Year JD

For students with family obligations, or for students who wish to continue working part-time, the School of Law offers a flexible scheduling option that allows a student to take fewer credits each semester and to earn his or her JD degree in a span of four years.  Students on this track complete the same number of credit hours as traditional three-year JD students, but they complete that work over eight semesters, spread over four calendar years.  Students on this track will generally have classes scheduled on two to three days per week, and they have the option of taking evening courses during the academic year and over the summer.  These students are able to select from the full-range of electives offered by the School of Law School, including participation in our extensive array of clinical courses, and they have the opportunity to participate in all extracurricular and co-curricular activities, including the Roger Williams University Law Review and the Roger Williams University Moot Court.
