I finished undergrad in 1996 and a masters program in 1999.  I'm currently working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  I want to do public health law and work for the government when i am through. 

Does anyone know of really good part time programs?  I'd like to work some while I am in school.

Georgetown. I suggest you check out their health law classes; they actually have some public health law classes in the lot. And it is the highest ranked school (if you buy into rankings) with a PT program. Plus, DC is a good place for governement work, allegedly ;-)

I just used the USNews site.

You can searched based on area, specialty, pt etc.

Can you believe there is not one public school in/around NYC with a pt program?

I suppose it doesn't help that there's only 1 public law school in NYC?  And only 1 public law school in Upstate too (which is also full-time only).

Hey, don't complain.  Boston has 6 private law schools and ZERO public law schools.  And for part time programs, your only choices are Suffolk and New England; the bottom rated two schools.  Even Northeastern, a school that recently cracked the second tier (or whatever you'd call the 50-100 level), a school that brags about its heritage of offering nontraditional methods because they were one of the first part time programs in existence, even they don't have a part time program.  Not that I'm bitter.

I'm not bitter, just responding to the previous poster.

I'm at Northeastern now, actually.  It was part-time when the school was founded but it shut down for a couple decades.  I believe that when it opened up again, there were already part-time law programs available.  In any case, part-time wouldn't fit into the school's curriculum as it's evolved.
