  • * Concord’s method of delivering instruction—via the Internet without a fixed classroom facility—places it in the unaccredited distance learning school category under the State Bar of California rules. While the California Bar and the American Bar Association (ABA) do not accredit distance learning schools, the Committee registers schools in this category.

    Concord Law School is registered as such and the JD program is designed to meet the legal education requirements of the Committee of Bar Examiners. Concord operates under the rules and guidelines established by the Committee. Those rules and guidelines require certain disclosures to prospective students and students which Concord supports. Study at, or graduation from, Concord may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student seeking admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirement for admission to the practice of law.
