Cost, location and lifestyle are just a few reasons.
After working nearly two decades as a paralegal, Ivan Gilbert decided to go to law school — but in a virtual world.
Gilbert personifies the typical student at Concord Law School, a distance learning or online law school. He's older, works full time and wanted his Juris Doctorate without massive debt. He tried traditional law school, but dropped out after his first year.
"I always wanted to go back to law school, so when Concord showed up it seems like a great opportunity to me," Gilbert said.
