North Carolina Central University School of Law offers two programs leading to the juris doctor degree: a full-time day program and a part-time evening program. Founded during a time of lawful racial segregation, an important aspect of the Law School's mission is to attract capable persons from diverse backgrounds. NCCU Law seeks students who are committed to public service and to meeting the needs of the underserved. Just as when the Law School opened its doors nearly seventy years ago, students at North Carolina Central University School of Law receive a broad-based legal education which treasures diversity and encourages freedom of expression. Today, the Law School holds one of the most diverse student bodies in our nation and continues to be a school of opportunity. The School has a rich and brilliant history; one of racial segregation, adversity, triumph, transition, growth and development. The North Carolina Central University School of Law is fully accredited by the North Carolina State Bar Council and the American Bar Association.
