Save time and money
Full-time students enrolling in the spring semester will be able to graduate in 2.5 years. You will not only spend fewer years in school but also be able to join the workforce half a year earlier than the typical law student, thus saving money. In addition, students will receive tuition credit for three (3) hours of summer school to be used during their second year of law school. The summer tuition waiver is for classes offered by and at the Charleston School of Law.
Advantage for working professionals
Not all incoming law students are enrolling in law school immediately after graduating from college. More than half of Charleston Law’s entering class had graduated from college over a year prior to enrolling in law school. Unlike recent college graduates, professionals are often prepared to begin law school at a time other than the typical fall semester start date. A spring semester start allows professionals the flexibility to choose an enrollment term that best fits their schedule.
Advantage for December college graduates
Students who are graduating from college in December will not have to wait eight months to begin law school. December college graduates will be able to transition straight from college to law school.
