    Juris Doctor (JD) Law Degree: The online JD degree is a 4-year, part-time program. Its traditional curriculum is grounded in core bar courses. Concord students often observe that our distinctive interactive online environment offers greater individual feedback and interaction than their previous brick-and-mortar graduate program experiences. Graduates may apply for admission to the State Bar of California. Start dates are in January, April, and August.

    Executive Juris Doctor (EJD) Law Degree: The online EJD degree, pioneered by Concord Law School, is designed for individuals who have an interest in the law or whose careers would benefit from a legal education. It is a 3-year, part-time program that provides a core of required courses, then offers students the freedom to choose a course of study tailored to their needs or interests. Graduates of the EJD program use their degree to advance their careers, expand their employment opportunities, or increase their legal knowledge without having to meet the regulatory requirements associated with becoming members of the bar. Start dates are in January, April, and August.

    Bar Admission

    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. Completion of a professional law degree program at this law school other than for the Juris Doctor degree does not qualify a student to take the California Bar Examination or to satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in California. 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.

    This law degree program comes with something you don't always find—complete support.
