LEGAL EXPERTISE LEADS TO EXCITING CAREER POSSIBILITIES

  • Information Technology

    Technology leaders leverage legal expertise as they plan and execute information technology initiatives, particularly in the fast-growing, highly-sensitive areas of cybersecurity and data protection.

  • Financial Services

    Financial professionals with advanced legal training have a powerful advantage in exploring avenues in banking, mortgage lending, compliance, business consulting, tax and accounting, trusts and estates, and advising broker-dealers and investment leaders.

  • Health Sciences

    With every detail of health care heavily regulated, legal expertise is needed to support patients and institutions more effectively. Career avenues include patient advocacy, hospital or clinic administration, electronic patient data systems, lab and research practices, device manufacturing, and much more.

  • Education

    Professionals with legal expertise affect every educational sector from Pre-K to PhD, plus special-needs and nonprofits. They’re steering policy at local, state, and federal levels; advocating on behalf of students and families; serving as board and trustee members; and shaping the future for generations to come.

  • Government

    There isn’t a single agency at local, state, or federal levels of government not affected by complex laws and regulations. Whether you pursue public sector career opportunities as a licensed attorney or as a specialized advocate, policy expert, agency leader, or in another role, your legal expertise is needed.

  • Criminal Justice

    Legal knowledge is invaluable to those who protect communities and enforce the law or lead others who do. When every action could have life-changing consequences, there’s no room for error. Police officers, detectives, sergeants, and specialized accident investigation teams all benefit.

  • Insurance

    Insurance and risk management offers numerous career paths for both licensed attorneys and those working within HR, business, finance, marketing, or other professional sectors who must understand complex regulatory issues or communicate effectively with attorneys and legal teams.

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.
