Purdue University buys Concord Law School

Concord Law School along with Kaplan University have been acquired by Purdue University to beef up Purdue’s online education offerings. What Prudue is going to do with America’s oldest online law school is beyond me. Only one state bar allows students from Concord Law School to sit for the bar exam and that’s California. “Graduates of Concord Law had a very poor showing during the July 2016 administration of the California bar exam, with an overall passage rate of just 16 percent. Only 27 percent of first-time takers from the school passed the test last summer,” writes ATL’s Staci Zaretsky in Big Ten University Purchases Online Law School With Abysmal Bar Passage Rates, adding “Purdue’s purchase may be revolutionary, but we’re not quite sure that the school’s students will be well served by a law school with such discouraging outcomes.” — Joe
