Juris Doctor (JD) – Online, On Campus, or a Hybrid of Both
If you have a passion for the law through a Christ-centered view, Trinity Law School’s Juris Doctor program can provide a biblical view of human law and government. Our mission is to prepare students to flourish as attorneys who are dedicated to advocating for justice, serving the church, and pursuing the truth throughout the world for Christ. Whether you decide to become an attorney, professor, or business leader, Trinity is where you will not only learn the law, but also engage in practical opportunities to put your passion to work.
To graduate with a Juris Doctor degree, you must successfully complete 74 units of required courses and 16 units of electives (90 units total) with C average (2.0 GPA). The Juris Doctor program can be completed in as little as three years full time and four years as either a part-time student or through the Flex Track program. The Flex Track program allows applicants who do not meet the regular LSAT requirements but show academic promise the opportunity to take courses in the evenings for the first year. Students must rank in the top 20% of their cohort or pass the First Year Law Students’ Exam before continuing into their second year. From there, they are considered part of the regular JD program.
Classes are offered during the day, in the evening, on Saturdays and Online. Juris Doctor students also receive the exclusive, added benefit of the On Course program that prepares students for the California Bar Exam from the first day of class. This support program runs alongside the JD coursework and is included in the tuition.
In addition, Trinity offers the opportunity for practical experience through internships and clinics, allowing graduates to have an edge in today’s competitive job market.
