Concord Law School is the leading online legal education provider in the U.S., offering both Juris Doctor (JD) and Executive Juris Doctor (EJD) degree programs. Thousands of students have graduated from Concord since it opened its virtual doors in 1998. Today, the School is part of Purdue Global, a nonprofit institution within the world-renowned Purdue University system, and is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California.*

What fuels the Concord educational experience is its accessibility and affordability. Most students are working adults who live in areas where there is little or no access to a law school education. Concord's convenient, online programs meet the needs of those who are otherwise highly qualified but who cannot move their families or change their employment status to attend a traditional law program.

The typical Concord classroom brings together a highly diverse group of students with a broad range of professional and personal experiences. This unique mix fosters a vibrant, motivated student body that works together to achieve its shared goal of earning a law degree.

Concord’s law school mission includes distinguished faculty that bring with them years of courtroom, boardroom, and public sector experience. Each is extremely accessible, encouraging, and non-intimidating. Concord students enjoy one-on-one support, hands-on learning experiences, and comprehensive career resources and counseling before and after graduation.

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.
