typical class timings?

Postby goosey » Wed Feb 10, 2010 10:43 pm

what is a typical class schedule like for law students? how many hours a day do you spend in class and are the spread throughout the day (like in undergrad) or are they usually confined to a specific block of time (ie. 8 am to 5 pm)

At my school credits and hours correspond. So if you have 18 credits in a semester you will spend 18 hours in class during the week. The classes are somewhat spread out like in undergrad, with fewer taking place in the evening than was my experience at my undergrad college.

To give an idea of something like a real schedule you might have class Monday Tuesday Wednesday from 9:40 to 11:00 and 3:10 to 4:30 with LRW on Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00 and then Thursday Friday class from 8:20 to 10:20 and 2:00 to 4:00. At my school class days tend to be clustered so that you will have the same class on consecutive days, unlike in undergrad where many classes were Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.
