    In addition to Capital University Law School’s reputation as a leader in legal education with our traditional full-time day program, we offer Central Ohio’s only part-time evening legal education program — allowing you to expand your professional skills while continuing to work full-time. We also boast recognition from the National Jurist for bar exam preparation and incredible access to real-world learning opportunities through our location in downtown Columbus.
