MC’s Executive JD Program Is Designed for Working Professionals Like You.

If you’re already established in a profession but wish to enhance your potential even further by earning a law degree, you may be a candidate for the Mississippi College School of Law Executive Law School Program.

Think beyond Part Time Law Schools 

The Executive Law School Program is designed for business people, educators, real estate professionals, medical personnel, and other full time workers who wish to obtain a law degree without leaving their current employment to attend law school full time. But this is no ordinary part time law school. You'll be attending a premier law school in Jackson, the heart of Mississippi's legal community. You'll learn from some of the most respected legal minds in the state, but at a slower pace that respects your current work schedule.

What is an Executive Juris Doctor (JD) Degree?

An Executive Juris Doctor is a professional graduate degree in law, similar to a traditional JD, but designed for individuals with significant work experience and professional backgrounds looking to build a solid foundation in the law to call upon in their current professional career.

Law School for Working Adults 

The executive JD program allows you to extend you legal studies over five years instead of the traditional three years, allowing you to continue working while attending law school. While the executive JD program is designed for working professionals, flexibility in your work schedules is required. You must take at least nine hours of law courses per semester, with most of the initial courses required taught during the day.

Admission to the Executive Program requires an interview, strong academic qualifications, excellent record of achievement in a graduate school program and/or an outstanding work history. Please call us at (601) 925-7152 if you would like to discuss these admission requirements.
