Concord Online Law Degree
Concord Law School is the first institution to offer a Juris Doctor (JD) degree earned wholly online via state-of-the-art technology. With the latest Internet-adaptive technologies, the Concord program offers excellent course instruction combined with maximum flexibility, specifically designed to fit into today's busy lifestyles. Most people cannot afford the time and resources required to make higher education their only priority. Concord understands this and provides the perfect platform to make higher education an accessible part of everyone's life.
Concord provides a rigorous and comprehensive legal education with a personalized curriculum and study program leading to a Juris Doctor (JD) degree or an Executive JDSM. Instruction is both highly theoretical and highly practical, emphasizing a critical understanding of how law functions in society as well as a practical knowledge of how lawyers function within the legal system.
Since opening in the fall of 1998, Concord has pioneered the delivery of high quality legal education on the Internet. The school serves working professionals, family caretakers, and others whose circumstances may prevent them from pursuing a legal education at a fixed facility law school. The typical student is in his or her mid-career with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0. More than 1,100 students are currently enrolled at Concord, including alumni of such prestigious universities as Columbia, Harvard, Yale, MIT, the University of California at Berkeley, Duke, and the University of Chicago. More than one third of the students already hold advanced degrees. Students hail from all U.S. states and 13 other countries and 78 percent reside outside of California.
Concord's diverse student body includes: educators, small business owners, CEOs, physicians, bankers, pilots, police officers, retired and active military officers, city planners, nurses, compliance analysts, dentists, consultants, accountants, sales representatives, engineers, real estate developers, stay-at-home parents, family caregivers, and others whose family and/or work obligations have made Concord Law School the right choice for them.
