There are online doctorates (other than JD) in law too though I believe. Those may be worth exploring as well.
I'd choose the MLS over the Executive JD. Non bar JDs have a long history of being dodgy even though the Concord one is not. Nothing gets a lawyer more riled up then some non lawyer holding himself out as John Smith JD. Don't know why that it is but John Smith LLM or John Smith LLB do not have the same negative effect.Depends on if you want to work for a lawyer or not, if not, screw what they feel.think
Masters are a good option, but people like that "JD" title. Good point about it not needing to be bar acceptable though.........Consider this (if you are 100% sure you NEVER want the bar exam, but still want a recognized degree)Anyone considering Taft? ...

Over 20 years plus Taft has a good track record of graduates actually passing the state bar. However since you say you do not want to be an attorney, might I suggest an accredited Masters in Legal Studies from Kaplan or other regionally accredited online provider. It will be quicker and cheaper. If you still want a JD, then Concord is a good one because it is the only one regionally accredited and has more bells and whistles for its students. Regionally accredited means that degree is accepted as a real graduate degree by other universities while the other law school's programs may or may not be.
I tend to agree, those who the nanny state is trying to protect are too stupid and arrogant to understand the odds of ever becoming a lawyer though distance learning. I calculated the odds as 20-1 against when I undertook distance learning and knew that if I made it past the First Year Bar exam - the odds improve to 5-1 against.

Anyone considering Taft? I was looking at American International School of Law. Their website seems outdated but I talked to the CEO and they still seem to be in business and have an active account with the CA Secretary of State. It's tuition is cheap.I'd use Concord/Kaplan
I am not interested in being a lawyer but I have always wanted to study law. I'm an older person (50) so there is no big career if I finish studying at an online school. I do not live in CA but I am from there and may move back next summer once my daughter goes off to college n
