Concord Law School is run by Kaplan University and is based in southern California. It has been around since 1998, when it only had 18 students. Now the school has over 1,200 students. If you haven’t heard of it before, that’s because the school is completely online.
A Note about Online Law Schools
Unfortunately, online law schools aren’t yet accredited by the American Bar Association. That means, even if you earn your J.D. at Concord Law School, the only state in which you’ll be able to take the bar exam is California. According to their website, Concord law school doesn’t have recognition or approval from any state other than California.
No other states allow students graduating from online law schools to take the bar exam. For more on this subject, check out this article on online law schools.
Concord Law School LSAT ranges
Concord Law School does not require students to take the LSAT. They simply ask that if you have taken it, you submit your score … assuming you want to.
Instead of taking the LSAT, Concord requires all applicants to take their own admissions test, so taking the LSAT might be a waste of your time.
Since the law school doesn’t have any restrictions on class size, they can admit just about anyone they want. Be sure you have a GPA of at least 3.0, and do a thorough job on your application.
If you do get accepted, since the law school is not accredited by the American Bar Association, you will also need to take an exam after your first year of law school is completed, in order to continue your legal education.
All in all, there are a few different hoops you’ll need to jump through in order to get your JD, and eventually become an attorney.
Make sure you seriously weigh your options, and make sure you’ve done your homework when you apply.
