You have these options of collaborating with instructors through this very structured intuitive platform that Concord has put together. You have to go through real curriculum, real professors, work on your assignments thoroughly, and they test you at every level on the curriculum.
Having my law degree helps me with credibility among lawyers who are typically the people that hire mediators.
I feel very fortunate that Concord has given me the wherewithal to give back to people. And I can actually make a difference and use all the things—all the fortunate circumstances I have—to better other people's lives.
*Concord Law School is part of Purdue University Global, which is regionally accredited. Concord Law School is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. Due to its accreditation by the Committee of Bar Examiners, Concord has the authority to offer a Juris Doctor degree that qualifies recipients to take the California Bar Examination and obtain admission to the practice of law in California.
Study at, or graduation from, Concord does not qualify graduates to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student who intends to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding its education and admissions requirements.
