Online Law Degree Programs
Concord launched the first fully interactive, online law degree program in 1998. Since then, its online JD and EJDSM degree programs have served students from around the country, and the globe, who otherwise would not have been able to attend law school. In 2010, Concord launched the first online LLM degree for attorneys in Small Business Practice. If you are interested in continuing your education, and a law degree or graduate law degree fits your career and personal goals, Concord’s online distance learning programs may well prove right for you.
Concord’s commitment as the pioneer online law school is to provide an accessible, affordable, part-time program that works for individuals with job and family responsibilities. Law school is challenging, and our online law degree programs, while flexible and supportive, are no different. Concord students seeking their first professional degree in law choose between two online, distance-learning law degrees:
Juris Doctor (JD) Law DegreeThe Concord online JD degree is a four-year, part-time program. Its traditional curriculum is grounded in core bar courses, but Concord students often observe that our distinctive interactive online environment offers greater individual feedback and interaction than their previous brick-and-mortar graduate program experiences. Graduates of this online distance learning degree program will have met the legal education requirements of the Committee of Bar Examiners, State Bar of California, and may apply for admission to the State Bar of California.
Executive Juris Doctor (EJD) Law DegreeThe online EJD program, pioneered by Concord Law School, is designed for individuals who have an interest in the law or whose careers would benefit from a legal education. It is a three-year, part-time program that provides a core of required courses, then offers students the freedom to choose a course of study tailored to their needs. EJD graduates use their online degree to advance their careers, expand their employment opportunities, or increase their personal knowledge without having to meet the regulatory requirements associated with becoming members of the bar.
Small Business Practice LLM DegreeThe LLM degree is designed for practicing attorneys and recent graduates who want an in-depth, practical knowledge of the legal issues unique to small business.
