During the first decade of the William S. Richardson School of Law's Evening Part Time Program, more than a hundred graduates managed to keep their day jobs while pursuing law degrees at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus.
Those graduates come from a strikingly broad number of professions, including education, the media, government, military and healthcare.
Most evening students graduate in four years, however, some students move more rapidly or more deliberately toward graduation. They also have the option of moving from the evening into the day program after two years.
Often evening students race to their classes after full-time jobs and family responsibilities, yet they form a remarkably cohesive cohort. Said Dean Avi Soifer, “It is a treat to teach in the evening program, to be challenged by students who know a great deal about the world, and to encounter the supportive world they create for one another.”
The Evening Part Time Program, launched in 2008 and led initially by Professor Hazel Beh, was founded to provide the opportunity to study law for those with professional, financial or family obligations during the day.
While current enrollment for the fall 2018 Evening Part Time Program is approaching the target number for the incoming class, there is still time to apply. The law school’s rolling admissions process will continue through the July 1 application deadline.
