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 bulletin boards, IM, and other technologies. The objective of the Executive Juris Doctor 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.
