2 Year J.D. Program

Brooklyn Law School’s new 2-year J.D. program is designed for select students seeking a rigorous legal education in an abbreviated timeframe. Highly qualified and mature candidates with a demonstrated ability to handle a challenging work load are encouraged to apply. The first entering class began in May 2014.

This program may be especially appealing to individuals seeking a career change; those who have recently completed military service (including candidates eligible through the Post-9/11 GI Bill); foreign-trained lawyers with strong English-language proficiency who seek additional credentials; and others interested in entering the workforce quickly.

The 2-year J.D. involves the same amount of work as our current part-time and full-time programs, but in a concentrated 24 months. To complete the degree requirements, students take courses during the summers before and after their first year; over spring and winter intersessions; and during the traditional fall and spring semesters. Students in this program will be able to take advantage of the full range of activities such as participating in extra and co-curricular activities, including clinics, externships, Moot Court, journals, and student organizations.

For more information and a chance to ask questions, join our 2-Year J.D. Program Webinar on Thursday, December 10.
