Mitchell is the only law school in the region to offer flexible scheduling. You can take classes during the day or in the evening, attend full- or part-time, and craft a schedule that works for you. At Mitchell, you have the ability to move freely between full-time and part-time enrollment as often as you want at each semester break.
For example, you have the ability to begin part-time in the fall semester of your first year, thereby easing the transition to law school, and then accelerate the program by enrolling full-time later, as early as spring semester of your first year.
