Message From the President - November 2016

A Message From Betty Vandenbosch, PhD, President

Concord_Law_School_LogoDid you know that Kaplan University has a law school?

Concord Law School of Kaplan University began in 1998 as the nation’s first fully online law school. Its core mission has been to make a high-quality legal education affordable and accessible. 

 I believe wholeheartedly in the School and Dean Martin Pritikin. Let me tell you a little bit more:

  •  It’s Affordable. The cost to attend Concord Law School is considerably less than both American Bar Association (ABA) schools nationwide and in California, where the school is based.  
  •  Comparable Outcomes. Our students’ first-time pass rate for the California Bar Exam in February 2016 (most recent available data) was 46.4%. ABA school graduates’ rate nationwide was 46.8% and 47.5% for ABA schools located in California.  
  •  Satisfied Students. The national survey administered to tens of thousands of students by the Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) indicated that Concord students responded more favorably than all respondents. Categories included being prepared to think critically and analytically, encouraging the ethical practice of law, having quality relationships with faculty, overall satisfaction of educational experience, among others.

It’s Accessible. Taking off time from your career or away from your family to attend law school may not be possible. Or, you may not live near a traditional school with a law program. Concord is online, providing a solution to both of these hurdles.
I could go on. So, if you or someone you know is interested in law school, consider Concord Law School. You’ll be glad you did.
