Attend Law School at Night

Empire College School of Law understands that your life is busy and that you cannot put your responsibilities on hold to pursue your career dreams. That’s why we offer a 4-year evening course of study. You can continue working at your current job while you prepare to pass the California Bar Examination and become a licensed attorney. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of attending law school at night.



Forgoing income in order to attend law school is not a possibility for everyone. If you need or want to continue working while in school, the flexibility of night classes is unbeatable. Maybe you have a family to support, you want to gain on-the-job experience before you begin your law career, or you just need to work part-time in order to pay your rent. Whatever your reasons, the concentrated schedule of evening courses helps you maintain control over your time.


Meet Experienced People

Because of the flexibility built into our night classes, Empire School of Law students have a variety of interesting backgrounds and experiences. You can meet students with families, first careers, hobbies and more. Learn from and network with people who have connections, jobs, and diverse interests. Not only is meeting these kinds of people interesting, it can also help widen your perspective and prepare you for your career in law.


On-the-job Training

There’s no substitute for real career experience. When you complete your legal education and enter the workforce, the training you received in your current job will look good to your future employer. Whether you’re a paralegal or working as a barista, the experience you are gaining within an organization and working with people is valuable. So, whatever job or career you have during law school, you can use the skills you gain there to help supplement your degree after graduation.


Challenge Yourself

Employers are often impressed by graduates who maintained a job while completing their degree. This ability to embrace a challenge demonstrates character, a strong work ethic, and diligence. Evening classes offer the same quality education that day courses do—taught by expert instructors and professors—so you develop the same knowledge as students in traditional day programs.

One of the things that I appreciate about going to Empire College was that the training was so hands-on.

Empire Law School provided the instruction, guidance, and motivation that I needed to pass the California State Bar Examination on the first try, despite the rigors of managing a full-time career and family commitments in parallel. I would absolutely recommend Empire Law School to anyone looking for relevant and masterful instruction in the subjects of law.

By assisting clients at the Self-Help Access Center, students learn about law, human nature, society and challenges people face on a daily basis.

Empire is perfect for individuals seeking a practical, cost-effective legal education taught by committed practitioners. Empire enabled me to grow and learn through experiences with the Superior Court’s Office and the District Attorney’s office as a student and then launch into a rewarding career serving as General Counsel for American Home Shield >Corporation, The ServiceMaster Franchise Group, Graham Packaging Company, and currently, Evergreen Packaging.

Walking across the graduation stage already employed with a full-time job was very gratifying.
