Anyone know of any online PhD or LLD in law besides UNISA or Leiden?

Depends on if you are ok with some on campus trips

Not 100% what you are asking for, but still something kind of close. Why bother though? Nothing to be gained in it unless you want to go into academia and you have said before you refuse to even become a real lawyer due to wanting to stay where you were before going your JD or LLM.

You got me confused with someone else bro.  But thanks for the info, never heard of a DLP, that is something new.  Looks like these are public law type degrees, no JD required.  Yes, useful for academia or employement with a INGO.

ok, I'll play this game. What is the job you have, and what is the job you want from the degree?

At least in the US, these degrees wouldn't even be useful for academia.

Law schools will want a JD from a top tier school, plus relevant experience. Other academic positions, such as teaching law/policy at the undergrad level, are incredibly competitive. Even small colleges and local state universities will get 200-300 applicants when a tenure track job opens up. They have their pick of the litter, and an online degree from a foreign university won't get past the first round.

Not for me, got a colleague who is a law school professor outside the US with a LLM and needs a doctorate to move up.
