California May Allow 100% Online State-Accredited Law Schools

Following up on my previous post, California’s New Frontier: Accreditation Of Online Law Schools:  ABA Journal, California May Offer More Opportunities For JDs Taught Entirely Online:

California Law SchoolsIf people are open to attending a non-ABA-accredited law school, they may soon have a lot more online choices in California—thanks to a recent rule change by the State Bar of California allowing state-accredited law schools to teach JD programs entirely over the internet.

Trinity Law School and John F. Kennedy University College of Law, two non-ABA-accredited schools that have California accreditation, have filed major change applications to offer 100% online JDs, according to the State Bar of California. Also, Concord Law School, Northwestern California University School of Law and Abraham Lincoln School of Law, all of which are unaccredited, distance-learning schools that already offer online JD programs, are now seeking state accreditation.
