The FlexTime program, which is currently offered at Touro Law Center’s Central Islip campus, is designed for qualified law school candidates whose employment or family responsibilities prevent them from attending classes full time. FlexTime students will attend in-person classes only on Sundays and complete asynchronous work throughout the week on their own time and at their own weekly pace. Offering the lowest in-person class attendance requirement of any program in New York, graduates earn their degrees in only four years and are eligible to sit for the New York State Bar Exam. The program, which has received American Bar Association (ABA) and New York State Education Department approval, will begin in August 2024, and applications will be accepted starting in September 2023.
“Since the launch of the FlexTime program on our Central Islip campus in 2018, it has had a track record of success. We are pleased to be able to expand the program and offer it at our Times Square Campus, making the program even more accessible to qualified candidates who bring their career and life experiences to the classroom,” stated Dr. Kadish.
The only accredited law degree program with in-person requirements exclusively on Sundays, FlexTime also fully integrates students into the fabric of the law school. FlexTime students have the opportunity to become involved in every aspect of law school life including clinics, pro bono activities, student organizations, and honor societies including Law Review, Moot Court, and TAPS.
“The FlexTime program provides 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,” said Elena Langan, Dean and Professor of Law at Touro Law Center.
