Maine Law’s flex time option allows students whose obligations prevent them from studying full-time to enroll in a reduced course load.   Flex time students are required to take a minimum of 7 credit hours per semester from the 1L curriculum during their first year of study, including Legal Research & Writing I & II and Civil Procedure. Students complete the rest of the 1L curriculum during their second year at Maine Law.

Flex time students typically complete their degree in 4 years, but have up to 7 years to finish their studies.

All flex time students must be accepted into the J.D. program through the regular admissions process.  For additional information, please contact the Office of Admissions at 207.780.4341.
