There are plenty of part time programs but it's not part time like an MBA or undergrad where you can take one or two classes at a time. At my school there are plenty of people who work full time and go to school part time. Still others have kids, so they must never sleep.

There are a few states that allow you to read the law to sit for the bar (Vermont comes to mind) but I don't think that helps you in NY unless you go to one of those states and they have a reciprocity agreement with NY that allows you to waive into NY. I doubt NY has such an agreement because its bar seems to have real jackass rules about who can practice in NY.

California's system is...well, bizarre.
