Full-time program and working full-time

Postby accuratesite2020 » Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:15 pm

Can someone help out a non-traditional here? Is it possible to work full-time and attend a full-time in-state school? The job I have is not really heavy lifting, in fact I can work and study for school while I'm there. Does the law school REQUIRE that I do not keep my full-time career? or is it just a suggestion...thanks.

No. The ABA limits full-time law students at ABA-accredited schools to working 20 hours per week, and I've heard that some schools have even lower limits.

You are locked into part time unfortunately.
