Becoming a lawyer opens career possibilities. From government to business to private practice, there are many different career routes for you to choose with a law degree. Likewise, we offer diverse programs to fit your path and where you are in life to turn your goals into reality.

If you want to complete your degree in a more traditional timespan, we offer a full-time program option. If you are a working professional or have other life commitments, you may benefit from our part-time and evening  Juris Doctor programs.

We also provide other options to set you apart in the marketplace. Our joint degree programs offered alongside our graduate schools enable you to earn a law degree combined with diverse studies of interest.

Another way you can differentiate yourself is through our innovative Business Essentials for Lawyers Micro-Credential program. It provides students a unique business perspective combined with the law.

Our Pittsburgh campus can take you where you want to go. It's only a short, three-block walk to downtown, where you can gain experience serving in internships, externships, and clerkships located in law firms, judicial offices, businesses, and government entities.
