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 visit Purdue Global’s State Licensure and Certifications page for state-specific requirements. Students are highly encouraged to confirm state requirements from the appropriate bar admissions office for their state of residence.
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.
