Concord’s curriculum design takes full advantage of the Internet. It replicates the classroom experience through a combination of video lectures and live synchronous classes; improves on the typical law school course by providing more opportunity for individual feedback through frequent quizzes and writing assignments; and promotes student engagement through the use of chatrooms, bulletin boards, and one-on-one email exchanges.
The objective in the EJD program is to ensure a solid background in core areas while providing the student with the latitude to create a study plan that reflects his or her goals and interests. Students master the foundational courses of Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law, and Legal Writing and Test-Taking in the first year. In years two and three, EJD students have the flexibility to choose broadly from the course offerings or focus their study through a series of tracks:
— fewest number of required courses; offers the greatest breadth of study.
— for individuals with a background or interest in technology; this track includes required courses and elective options at Kaplan University
— for individuals with a background or interest in criminal justice; this track includes required courses and elective options at Kaplan University
Innovation Protection Track
—for individuals with a science or technology background interested in expanding their knowledge in the areas of patents and trademarks
