Employment While Enrolled

Because full time law study is very demanding, the law school strongly discourages employment for full-time students in the first-year of law school, and encourages upper level students to limit employment to no more than 20 hours per week during the semester. The law school will not employ first-year students in the first semester of law school, but may employ a first-year student in the second semester if the student ranks in the top 75 percent of the class academically and is work study eligible. Any full-time student employed by the law school will not be permitted to work more than 20 hours per week during the semester.
