At Illinois, usually 1:15 to 1:20 three days per week for the doctrinal classes, 0:50 to 0:55 two days per week for the writing and research classes.  We also have a couple of upper level classes, taught by adjunct professors who also work a regular job, which run as long as 3:00 either one or two days per week.

At my school all of our classes are 55 minutes and either 2, 3 or 4 days a week depending on the number of credit hours.

At Temple, classes are 50 minutes per credit hour, per week, unless the class is a writing seminar. Writing seminars meet 33.3 minutes per credit hour, per week. The vast majority of classes are 2 or 3 credits.

my 1L classes ranged from 55 minutes to 1:10. almost all of my 2L classes are 2 hours each twice a week.

Ditto for UMN.
