Concord's law school is not accredited as far as I can tell.  All the online schools come under a single registration scheme by California.

But without ABA accrditation, it does not really matter what they do.

If you want to teach criminal justice get a Masters in CJ. However since they pass those out like candy on Halloween, you may need a PhD to get a full time job.  And if you want to work at an actual (versus online) university or college, don't expect them to respect an online degree even if it is accredited. There is a big difference in an employer's mind between students who get a degree posting online and writing papers versus showing up for lectures and taking exams.

Your best shot might be to look into doing continuing education and training for the feds.

Masters is the minimum entry point for most adjunct jobs.

With the exception of Concord which is owned by Washington Post Corp., the online law schools are low budget affairs.  You cannot compare them to ABA law schools.

Students from online schools who pass the bar would usually have done just fine at an ABA school.  The ones who wash out, would have washed out of an ABA school too.

Online law (and previously correspondence) schools are limited to California - the California Bar is unique in many respects and will always remain so.

If you want to teach, get a real degree and some teaching experience.  Even if you want to teach online you will need experience.  EJD is a bad choice for just about any purpose.

Ask yourself, why would would you be qualified to teach anything when all you have is an online degree and who would hire you with no teaching or legal experience?

Additionally, ask yourself how much an online adjunct instructor earns since that would be your only hope.

Psst - An online adjunct gets around $1500 a class.  You will be paying back that student loan for a long time.

EJD - rotfl!  EJD is a vanity degree.

Online schools cannot attract "good prospects" because online degree holders are locked out of at least 95% of all bars.  The situation will only change when ABA law schools start offering online JDs like many regionally accredited bricks and mortar schools do now with graduate degrees.   The ABA schools could then get rid of over paid law professors and hire adjuncts and in theory the cost to the student would drop.

If the ABA did not discriminate against online degree holders by locking them out of 95% of state jurisdictions, the pass rate would be higher because more competent students would opt for online degrees.  I get a kick out of all those sanctimonious law school graduates who suffered through endless boring and pointless lectures on Property law and Civil Procedure who claim online degrees worthless.  In the end, most students get by memorizing outlines and taking Barbri.
