What They Are Saying About Syracuse’s Online Law School Program

One of the immediate advantages of hybrid and online programs is the flexibility they allow, as flexibility begets access. Syracuse … may now become an option for a talented student for whom the opportunity and other costs of a residential program would have been too high even to consider.

Inside Higher Ed

Syracuse University College of Law is pioneering one of the nation’s hybrid JD programs, available for enrollment in 2019, and others are looking into the potential advantages of this type of offering, particularly as the post-secondary student body grows in non-traditional, mid-career adults seeking credentials from flexible programs.

“This program will be incredibly helpful to those who just can’t pursue an on-campus law school education. Whether it be because of jobs, families or any other reason, the commitment of being a full-time student on campus for three years can be taxing.”

The Daily Orange

“I started Googling ‘online law school’ and quickly discovered that there was a new program that would fit my needs,” she said. “This program is quite literally the only way that a legal education is approachable given my professional and family life.”
