Accredited Online JD Degree Programs

Legal degree and paralegal degree programs – sometimes collectively called “legal studies” – can qualify you for work in a variety of law specialties, including criminal law, family law, real estate law, tax law and many others. A Juris Doctor (JD) professional doctorate is required to practice law, so if you are going to be an attorney you must pursue education at the doctoral level. JD degree programs are typically geared towards those who want to become university professors, but any paralegal job you desire would typically be within your reach after earning such a degree.

Complete Your JD Program Online

Legal studies graduate degrees earned online are increasingly common because they offer you the opportunity to advance your legal career while continuing to work full-time.

For example, working on your online Juris Doctor (JD) professional degree allows you to maintain full-time employment – perhaps in a related field like legal secretary – while taking your legal courses as time permits. Completing a legal studies graduate program presents you with financial advantages as well; according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, professionals who hold a doctorate can earn up to $30,000 more annually than someone with only a bachelor’s degree.

Sample Degree – Juris Doctor (JD)

The JD professional degree requires about three years of full-time postgraduate study. It is required to practice law, and graduates must also pass their state bar exam. Lawyers typically specialize in a particular area of law, such as criminal law or tax law.
