Most schools will post schedules online. For instance...

http://www.law.gmu.edu/academics/schedule/2014/fall

Here you can see 1L course such as Torts, Contracts, Property run 2 hrs per session, Legal Writing runs 1 hour per session.

I know at my UG at least some classes were 1 hours, a few 2 hours, and a good chunk were 3 hours. Generally the STEM classes (that I took at least) would be 2 hours, upper level seminar etc. 3 hours, and lower level or more lecture heavy social sciences/history upper level 1 hour

Point being I do not see how that invalidates his question.

2-hour law school classes sound pretty horrible imo...

In that case I am sure you would love the capstone week schedule that is part of the hybrid program I am in. Fortunately it only last for seven days, but roughly Sun went noon till five, Mon - Fri were 8AM to 5 or 6PM, and Sat was 8AM - 1PM.

I visited a friend's class at NYU and their professor gave them a break in the middle of their two-hour class.
