Part-time students take the same courses over three semesters.
Upper-level courses vary from year to year, and new offerings are added to the curriculum in response to student interest and global and national events that impact the law. Second- and third-year students may also take one law-related graduate course per semester at The New School, located steps from Cardozo's door, and graduate courses offered by other schools within Yeshiva University.
Students may choose to graduate with a concentration in any of the areas except for those marked with an asterisk.
