Recent developments are likely to result in more online J.D. programs. Traditionally, the American Bar Association limited the number of distance education credits applied toward earning a J.D. to 15. Given that law schools typically require 85-90 credits to graduate, one could not obtain a J.D. from an ABA-accredited institution entirely online. Practically speaking, online law programs were left open to students in the few states – most notably California – whose bar associations did not require graduation from an accredited school. Last year, however, the ABA relaxed its standards for online education. The number of online credits allowed to be taken remotely has increased to a third of the graduation requirement, including 10 in the first year of the program.
