Home Admissions About Our Degree J.D. Part-time / Campus

Delivered on campus, in person (evening classes)

With our part-time J.D. program, you decide which schedule fits best for you — on campus or online.

The goal of our part-time schedules is to allow you to obtain a rigorous, ABA-accredited J.D. degree while maintaining your personal and professional commitments.

South Texas College of Law Houston was founded in 1923 to provide a legal education for working professionals. Since its founding, South Texas has earned a reputation for educating exceptional practice-ready attorneys.
