Concord Law School
The only law school to pioneer a future in law online.

In 1998, founding Dean of Concord University School of Law, Jack R. Goetz saw a need and envisioned an Internet an opportunity in offering the study of law to those who did not always have access to reach their higher aspirations. With the assistance and support of Kaplan Incorporated's Andrew S. Rosen and two inspired technology specialists ('s Craig Gold and Grant Moncur); Concord Law School opened in October 1998 with 33 students and were known communally as CU1.

On November 21, 2002 at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, CA, Concord's first graduating class received their diplomas. Ten Juris Doctor candidates and several Executive Juris Doctor candidates received their diplomas that day. Concord opened its virtual doors in October of 1998 with only six faculty members and 33 bold students. Today, the school has grown to more than twice it's size.

What started out only as an idea has grown into a valuable access for individuals who were prevented from pursuing their educational goals due to different financial obstacles. Concord understood that and with that understanding, Concord Law School found a way to bring the education to them. The Doctor of Law degree is earned wholly online via high tech technology designed to fit into today's busy lifestyles.

Concord provides a thorough and all-inclusive legal educational culture with a personalized and dedicated curriculum leading to what is called a Juris Doctor degree (Doctor of Law). The instruction is both exceedingly theoretical and practical, giving an emphasis to critical understanding of how law functions in society and rivals that of any ground campus Law school.

In July of 2006 Concord Law School celebrated the seventh graduation ceremony. The graduation speaker was Peter W. Martin who said "I have participated in scores of law school graduations in my career as a law teacher and regularly presided over them during my term as a dean, but none surpass this one for collective accomplishment and promise."
