I'm interested in getting a law degree online. How do I go about doing that?
I keep seeing ads for online law schools. Are these real law schools? Can you really get a juris doctor online?

There are several schools offering Juris Doctors online. One of the best-known online law schools is Concord, which is located in California. Here's a link to our page on the site:

Concord Law School Online

The thing you have to bear in mind about online law schools is that, as of this writing, the American Bar Association doesn't accredit them. Most states require practicing lawyers to have a degree from an ABA-accredited school before they can take the bar exam. An online law degree limits the places where you can practice.

Many people who go for an online JD aren't planning to be practicing lawyers; they simply want a better understanding of legal issues that affect their existing careers. But that doesn't mean you can't be a lawyer if you have an online degree. You can still take the bar in a few states, including California, where Concord is located.

The ABA has recently relaxed their rules a bit and allowed traditional campus schools to hold some of their classes online. You may be best served by checking with law schools in your area to see if any hold online classes. You may be able to take some, if not all, of your classes online and still graduate from an ABA-accredited school.
