- Can I transfer my credits to Concord Law School?
Juris Doctor (JD) Program
If you studied at a law school located in the United States, you must have your legal study evaluated and certified by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California prior to Concord Law School's acceptance and application of those credits into the Juris Doctor program. Evaluation is not needed if transfer credits are California accredited or ABA approved for JD.
Executive Juris Doctor (EJD) Program
Acceptance of transfer credits generally requires an agreement with the transferring institution and is subject to review by the Dean's Office. Transfer credits must be from a law school course or there is an agreement with the other school in the case of master's, etc.

It takes approximately 1 hour to complete the online application.

Accreditation: 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 online.
