Accredited Online Law Schools with Program Overviews

Higher Education Articles February 28, 2013

Law schools are accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA), the only nationally recognized accrediting agency. In a majority of states, sitting for the bar exam is restricted to graduates from an ABA-accredited program. Currently, no online law schools receive American Bar Association accreditation and the law degrees that are offered to students through online schools may not be recognized by states. Nevertheless, online technologies such as Internet services, VPN, and video, are being used by several accredited law schools in imparting on-campus coursework.
