How many years does it take to study in a law school

Report as

The full time course of study is 3 years. Some schools offer a "night school" curriculum which is expected to be completed in 4 years, but can take a little longer. The rules of the accrediting body require that a law degree be completed in (I think) no more than 6 years.

At least four, I believe, and a whole lot of school fees to repay. Make sure you pass. ;)

As many years as it takes you to graduate.

Actually, that's incorrect. Law schools have a limit on how many years you may take to get your J.D. degree. t's not like getting a PhD, where you can take 20 years to do the research. I believe the limit is 6 years, but it's been 15 years since I went to law school so I'm not positive about that.

Actually, it is correct, because if you don't finish in 6 years and your no longer in law school, would you really still be studying law school? Read the question.

After a college degree, 3 more years, then pass the bar exam. Not all law school grads are able to pass the bar exam...it's very difficult.
