Providing you with an exceptional legal education.
At Creighton University School of Law, an outstanding legal education starts in the classroom. You’ll learn from full-time faculty members and distinguished adjunct faculty who are all extraordinary teachers. They’re also available—when you need them—thanks to our open-door policy.
We’re here to guide you—from Day 1 through to your JD.
To complete requirements for your Juris Doctor degree, you begin with foundational, required courses in your first year.
From there you’re required to earn 58 additional hours to graduate. To achieve that, you must take an average of 15 hours in each of your last four semesters. To reduce that number, you can take summer courses.
In your second year (or in your third year with permission from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs), you must complete second year required courses and begin completing your experiential learning requirement. Beginning in your second year, you are also able to choose from several concentrations or enroll in electives that interest you. View an alphabetical listing of electives or the School of Law course catalog for full descriptions.
