  Notes and Conditions - Please Read

*Accreditation and Disclosures: Concord Law School is part of Purdue University Global, which is regionally accredited. Concord Law School is registered as a Distance Learning Law School with the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. Registration with the Committee permits Concord JD graduates, who meet the regulatory requirements, to apply for admission to the State Bar of 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 upon graduation. A student seeking admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California may need additional experience/education to qualify for that state's bar. Students should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirement for admission to the practice of law prior to enrollment at Concord.

Concord is not on the list of schools approved by the American Bar Association. The ABA Standards for the Approval of Law Schools currently do not allow for JD programs that are delivered fully or substantially online.

Employment and Career Advancement: Concord Law School cannot guarantee employment or career advancement.

Source for Tuition Comparison: American Bar Association, www.abarequireddisclosures.org/. Calculation uses average tuition for ABA nonresident full-time students for a 3-year period. Concord Law School's Juris Doctor is a part-time 4-year program, which equates to 3 years of full-time study.

Testimonials: Testimonials were solicited by Concord Law School. Purdue University acquired Kaplan University, of which Concord is a part, in March 2018 and created Purdue University Global, which is following the same curriculum format and instructional delivery methods as developed and used by Concord.
