The Executive J.D. Schedule – Faulkner Law

The Executive J.D. Schedule

Learn Law. Seek Justice. — On Your Schedule.


Faulkner Law students receive a J.D. education built with the strength of Faulkner Law expertise but on a flexible schedule that works for their busy professional lives."

Charles B. Campbell, Dean & Associate Professor of Law


Students from Atlanta to Pensacola to anywhere in Alabama and beyond, can earn their law degree with a flexible blended learning experience of online and in-person coursework. Faulkner Law’s Executive J.D. Schedule is aimed at working professionals who have been unable to leave their jobs to become a lawyer, but who can combine online work during the week (on their schedule) with weekend campus study (Friday evening and Saturday morning and afternoon timelines). Students able to commute to Montgomery about two weekends a month will earn the same law degree as our traditional students. Graduates will be qualified to take the bar exam in every state except New York (the only state yet to adopt ABA standards for distance education).

The Executive J.D. Schedule delivers a substantial amount of the degree’s coursework online via live and pre-recorded video lectures, reading and writing assignments, assessments, and discussion board contributions, as well as providing interactive engagement with faculty and fellow students and 24-7 technical support. Additionally, the Executive J.D. Schedule offers parity with Faulkner Law’s on-campus J.D., including integrating bar exam preparedness, maintaining compliance with overall ABA Standards, providing student services and academic support, and following established admissions standards (including accepting either LSAT or GRE scores). Students who want to seek justice, serve their community, and fulfill their dream of becoming a lawyer can do so at Faulkner Law.
