FlexTime JDSM Program
As part of the FlexTime JD Program, classes are offered in a hybrid model which requires students to attend classes in person generally for 10 Sundays for each of the Fall and Spring semesters, plus at least one additional Sunday for final exams per semester and a possible alternative Sunday should a makeup day be required. Students must attend one summer semester, generally 7 weeks of Sunday classes plus at least one additional Sunday for final exams and any makeup Sunday that may be required. The remainder of classwork is completed asynchronously, allowing students to complete the work when and where it fits their individual schedules.
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.
While it is a unique program, it is also fully integrated 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. FlexTime students are serving as leaders of the law school in various organizations.
