What an excellent question! The ABA, or American Bar Association, does accredit schools; however, there are no law schools that provide a JD degree that is accredited and via distance education. Now with that said, that doesn't mean you can't start your path to a law degree online. There are a number of ABA accredited Associate Degrees in Paralegal Studies that are available online.

Here are a number of online Paralegal Associate Degrees that might be of some interest.

Associate Degree - Paralegal Studies - Bryant & Stratton College

Associate in Science Degree in Paralegal Studies - Peirce College

Associate of Applied Science in Paralegal - Rasmussen College

Associate of Applied Science in Paralegal - Westwood College Online

Associate of Applied Science in Paralegal Studies - Kaplan University

Also, here is an excellent article from the ABA on Preparing for Law School.
