Evening JD

Get ahead on your own schedule—our renowned program is offered at night.

Suffolk Law began as an evening program designed for working professionals to earn a law degree. It’s these deep student-centered roots and a commitment to innovation that have propelled Suffolk Law's evening JD program into the Top 40 by US News & World Report for the past three years running.

Graduates of our evening law program can be found thriving in their careers from the State House to the largest firms, Fortune 500 companies, and everywhere in between. Our four-year evening part-time program is ideal for students who want to pursue a legal degree but also have commitments such as full-time jobs, families, and responsibilities that make it difficult to be a student during the daytime hours.

At Suffolk Law, our evening students are very much a part of our student community. From moot court to law journals, clinics, and more—our evening students have all the advantages and benefits of any student at Suffolk University Law School. With our evening part-time degree option, there’s no reason to put off pursuing your dreams of going to law school. Apply to Suffolk Law Evening division and get one step closer to your legal career.
