What level of degree is a J.D.?

Students pursuing a J.D. degree concentrate on achieving a single professional goal: becoming a lawyer. This is the only sort of legal curriculum that permits graduates to take the state bar test. Many legal schools provide students with the option of attending full-time or part-time. According to the American Bar Association (ABA), full-time students cannot work more than 20 hours per week, and the J.D. must be completed within three years. Part-time students frequently enroll in nighttime classes, adding 1-2 years to their degree completion time.
