Earn Your Law Degree from Home, Wherever Home Happens to Be

JDinteractive (JDi) is an ABA-accredited, hybrid online J.D. program designed for students who desire a high-caliber legal education with substantial flexibility and has been recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the 2024 Best Online J.D. programs.

Our program is adaptable to your schedule. You can attend year-round to get your degree in three to four years, or space out your learning experience for up to seven years. JDi is flexible for students who are employed full-time, have parental commitments, are involved in their community, need to travel often or have other time obligations. It makes the law degree accessible. 

Classes are taught by the same Syracuse University College of Law faculty who teach the J.D. residential program, with equal rigorous academic standards and a combination of live and self-paced online class sessions.

Best of all, participate in six on-campus residencies taught by distinguished faculty and experienced alumni throughout the course of your education. Network with impressive alumni who are leaders in their fields, from the CEO of JetBlue to the General Counsel for Starbucks.
