Concord Law School Program Review
Students wishing to earn their JD or Executive JD degree in an online format without sacrificing quality instruction can enroll in Kaplan University's Concord Law School. Students with undergraduate degrees from respected universities like MIT, Yale and Harvard enroll at Concord Law School to access the outstanding resources and legal training offered by the school. Well-respected faculty members with real-world law experience communicate with students through video lectures, live online classes and individual tutorials. Classes are student focused and demanding but are accessible, convenient and affordable.
Concord Law School was established as an online law school in 1998. In 2007, Concord Law School joined Kaplan University and became the first online law school to award degrees as part of a regionally accredited college or university. It is registered with the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council, but is not recognized by the American Bar Association.
Students can complete their JD or Executive JD degrees online at Concord Law School. The JD program typically lasts four years for part-time students and encourages students to actively participate in discussions that center around traditional law school topics. The EJD program lasts three years and features a combination of core courses and elective courses that satisfy students' personal or professional needs. Graduates of this program use their degree to advance their current careers, give them an edge when applying for new jobs and pursue a deeper understanding of the law that can help them in their personal lives.
Concord Law School's distance learning program allows students to access video lectures 24/7, easily communicate with faculty members and other students, and become a member of a supportive, positive community.
