Individuals seeking to practice law and develop the greatest range of career opportunities should enroll in the Juris Doctor Program. Graduates are eligible to apply to sit for the California bar examination. Upon passing the bar examination and fulfilling the other regulatory requirements, graduates become eligible to practice law in the State of California.
Alumni may also work in a number of federal practice areas.
Study at, or graduation from Concord may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice in jurisdictions other than California. A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.
Beyond the traditional practice of law, a licensed attorney has the knowledge, skills and credentials for employment in a broad spectrum of career opportunities.
