On Jan. 6, 2003, a story about Concord Law School said that “the nation’s first online law school has graduated its first class.” Concord said it was established in 1998. We have subsequently learned that at least one other online law school, Abraham Lincoln University School of Law, was founded earlier, in 1997, and graduated its first class in 2001. Concord said, “Our understanding is that Abraham Lincoln’s program was not wholly online at the time of its founding; we still believe that our graduates were the first to have gotten their JD entirely online.”
