JDi is an ABA-approved flexible law degree option designed for talented students who cannot relocate to law school because of work or family commitments. The program combines real-time, live online class sessions with self-paced instruction, on-campus courses, and experiential learning opportunities.

The JDinteractive Online JD Experience

  • Online law school students earn the same degree as they do on campus.
  • The College’s distinguished faculty design and teach the courses.
  • Admissions standards mirror those in Syracuse’s residential program.
  • The part-time structure offers JDi students a flexible schedule.
  • In-person residencies connect students with College of Law professors, our Syracuse campus, and other Syracuse students.
JDinteractive is a technological innovation in legal education, but the fundamentals will stay the same. They will always be at the heart of Syracuse’s law school curriculum.

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.
