As a retired college professor and a former student at Concord, go for the JD Degree. The bar pass rate is low, but in my experience you get a teaching job networking with a full-time faculty member or recommendation from a current adjunct. It is very political and difficult to even obtain an adjunct postion and yes, a Master's dergree is the minimum for teaching. A degree from an accredited school is a must. Last year 37% of those who graduated from law school was from an online school. I have read of all law school graduates-only about 50% have found a job as an attorney-not a bright outlook. I always liked adjuncts who had several years of work experience with a degree. I stayed away from those who only went to school, did not have actual work experience.

Actually I have met faculty at a HBCU that had only a JD and also Community College faculty with just a JD, but not an online JD.
Colleges and universities will count the JD (brick and mortar) as a doctoral degree for accreditation and tenure track purposes. They will grant the JD equivalency for these two issues. However, if the teaching position requires a doctoral degree the JD is NOT an academic/subject matter substitute. The doctoral degree expected is usually the PhD.
