In law schools there are only three acreditations that matter for purposes of the bar exam.
DETC while notable has no practical effect on taking the bar exam ANYWHERE in the country.
The main benefit of DETC is that it makes you eligible for SOME forms of financial aid
and that it might look a little bit better when applying for a job outside of CA.
The main advantage of Concord is that it is probably the best known distance law school
and that your fellow students will be a bit higher level than most other correspondence
law students. Concord also seems to care about building its reputation.
In california , a school may be unaccredited but having a fairly decent par passing rate
(Northwestern California 35-45%) and been around for 25 years or so.
