35 elective credits (including the professional skills requirement) are normally required for the J.D. Eight credits of LAW courses (310, 404, and 410 or 615) are in the NCR Foundational section. Up to 9 credits may be fulfilled by NCR courses.

An academic residency requirement of 6 semesters of full-time enrollment (or its part-time equivalent) must be met. For this purpose, full-time enrollment requires carrying at least 10 hours of J.D. coursework.

Many of the masters-level courses are available in intensive one- or two-week schedule formats during evenings, spring and fall breaks and summers.
