Syracuse University College of Law’s interactive online law degree provides student support through the Office of Student Life and the faculty. JDinteractive students have comparable access to programming and services, including academic counseling, student support, virtual tutors, study groups, bar exam preparation, and professional development.
An interactive online law degree program with a difference, just like residential law students, JDinteractive students engage with faculty for academic support and counseling. Faculty hold online office hours to answer questions and counsel online students regularly.
