FlexTime JDSM Program - Long Island Campus
This unique program, offered at Touro Law Center's main campus on Long Island, 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 four years.
As part of the FlexTime JD Program, classes are offered in a hybrid model which requires students to attend classes in person at the Law Center on Sundays during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students must attend one summer semester, with in-person classes also being held only on Sundays. 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.
Consistent with ABA requirements, Touro Law Center’s goal in admitting candidates to its JD Programs and LLM Programs is the likelihood of success in the program to which the person is being admitted. The selection process is holistic and not mechanical.
