FlexTime JDSM Program

This unique program is designed to accommodate the schedules of students who might typically enter a part-time law program, but need even more flexibility for work or family obligations. The program provides this increased flexibility through uniquely tailored combinations of online and in-person instructional components. The program will provide students with maximum flexibility while maintaining a rigorous course of study that will prepare them for the realities of law practice, and will do so using the latest in evidence-based teaching and learning tools. FlexTime students will be able to complete the requirements for their JD in just under four years, allowing successful members of the inaugural fall 2018 class to sit for the July 2022 bar exam.
As part of the FlexTime JD program, classes are offered in a hybrid model which requires students to attend classes in person for only 10 Sundays plus 3-4 fully remote Sundays. Students have the option of taking up to 20 credits fully online. Students attend fall, spring, and summer for the first three years. During their fourth year, they can complete their final credits in just two semesters.
All content, both in person and online, is delivered in a manner that matches the standards for Touro’s full-time day program. In fact, the extended in-person sessions and online delivery platform provide numerous teaching and learning opportunities unique to the FlexTime JDSM Program.
