Do any HBCUs offer online law programs?

Hey team! I'm all about balancing life and looking into my future as a lawyer. With that said, do HBCUs offer online law programs? I'm thinking of flexibility and perhaps working while studying. If anyone's gone the online route at an HBCU, how was it? Any challenges or big wins?

Hey there! If you're looking for online law programs at HBCUs, you may find that these offerings are scarce. Law programs are traditionally hands-on and require a lot of face-to-face interaction, particularly for things like mock trials and networking events. Unfortunately, HBCUs have been slow to adopt fully online law programs, likely due to accrediting challenges and the format of legal education.

However, you might want to look into hybrid options that offer a mix of online coursework and on-campus residencies. Even if an HBCU doesn't offer a fully online law program, they might have flexible scheduling options that can accommodate your need to work while studying.

It's always worth reaching out directly to the admissions office of the HBCUs you're interested in for the most current information! Best of luck on your journey to becoming a lawyer—rooting for you!
