    Re: Concord Law School of Kaplan University (Rule XIX)

    Concord Law School, formerly known as "Concord University School of Law", is an online law school based in Los Angeles, California. The school is a subsidiary of the Kaplan Higher Education Corporation. All lecture and study sessions are delivered entirely from a secure website on the Internet.

    Degrees offered

    Both a J.D. degree and an Executive J.D. (EJD) degree are offered. The recipients of J.D. degrees who pass the California Bar Exam and otherwise meet the California State Bar requirements are admitted to the bar and can practice law in California.

    Accreditation status

    Concord is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council, but is not accredited by any law school accrediting body. It is a member of the International Association of Law Schools and the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

    The merger of Concord into Kaplan University in late 2007 made Concord the first online law school to be part of a regionally accredited university. However, the school is not accredited by the American Bar Association, or by the California Committee of Bar Examiners.

    Because of the school's status as an unaccredited distance learning law school by the California Bar Association, Concord students must take and pass California's First Year Law Student Examination, colloquially called the "Baby Bar," after their first year of law study. Students may progress to advanced law courses and eventually sit for California's State Bar Examination once they have passed the Baby Bar.

    The California State Bar reports that of the 196 Concord students taking the "baby bar" in October 2008, 28 or 14.3% passed. The average for All Takers of the "baby bar" is 14.7% of 653 examinees. The California State Bar report for the July 2008 Bar Exam states that of the 102 Concord graduates taking the Bar Exam, 30 or 29.4% passed. The figures for the February, 2009 Bar Exam are that of the 109 Concord graduates taking the California Bar Exam, 29 passed, a 26.6% rate. All takers of the February, 2009 Bar Exam, had a pass rate of 34.4% of 4445 examinees and in July, 2008 it was 61% of 8990 examinees. Total CA unaccredited had a 21.3% pass rate of 427 total examinees in July, 2008. In February, 2009, CA unaccredited distance learning had a total pass rate of 18.4% with 185 test takers.

      Concord Online Law Degree Programs

      Concord launched the first fully interactive, online law degree program in 1998. Since then, its online JD and EJDSM degree programs have served students from around the country, and the globe, who otherwise would not have been able to attend law school. If you are interested in continuing your education, and a law degree fits your career and personal goals, Concord's online distance learning degree may well prove right for you.

      Concord's commitment as the pioneer online law school is to provide an accessible, affordable, part-time program that works for individuals with job and family responsibilities. Law school is challenging, and our online law degree programs, while flexible and supportive, are no different. Concord students choose between two online, distance-learning law degree programs:
