Stetson University College of Law will more than double the number of credit hours offered at its Tampa Law Center. This month, the American Bar Association approved Stetson’s request to allow part-time students to take up to half of their course requirements in Tampa.

“Had it not been for Stetson’s part-time program, I wouldn’t have even entertained the thought of transitioning to a law career at this phase in my life,” said Darin Richter, who completed both a law degree and an MBA degree in May 2008.

Stetson’s part-time program began on its Gulfport campus in 2002. Stetson’s Tampa Law Center opened in 2004, allowing students to take approximately one-fifth of their classes in Tampa. The Tampa Law Center houses two courtrooms, the Tampa division of Florida’s Second District Court of Appeal, state-of-the-art classrooms, and a law library with many group study rooms.
