Next Step: Law School

You want to go to law school, but you have an online degree…is this possible? The short answer is yes, but it depends on where you apply to and if your degree is from an accredited institution.

For example, students who achieved their B.S. in Legal Studies from American Public University (APU) went on to law school at prestigious institutions. The legal studies program at APU provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to make them successful in today’s legal environment. It’s designed for those interested in attending law school or those interested in a variety of positions in the legal field. Students of the program are taught the fundamentals of legal research and writing by thorough examination of applicable case law.

The legal studies program at APU prepares its students for entering careers in law, and opens up the opportunity for attending law school. Here are some of the schools that APU graduates have continued onto after receiving their bachelor’s: 

With all these great options, it goes to show that having an online degree doesn’t restrict you from achieving your goals. Whether those goals lead you to law school or not, a degree in law from APU can help point you in the right direction.
