Academics & Programs at Dayton Law

J.D. Program

An education at Dayton Law will prepare you for anything and to make an impact anywhere. This preparation begins in your first year, with our highly regarded legal writing program, which will help you acquire the legal research and writing skills used in the practice of law today.  

You’ll gain vital practical experience through our required Externship Program and Law Clinic, which allow you to work with real clients with real legal needs and receive essential hands-on training.  

In addition to a traditional three-year program, we offer a Two-Year J.D. Program and an Online Hybrid J.D. Program. No matter which path you choose, we offer a flexible system to support your needs. Our dedicated faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and vibrant community augment a well-rounded and practical law school experience.
