Career assistance offered by the University is not an obligation or guarantee of employment. Although the University will assist you, finding a job is ultimately your responsibility. The University does not guarantee that you will be placed in any particular job, or at all. Some jobs may require additional training, certification, or experience. No employee of the University is authorized to guarantee that a graduate will earn any specific amount. Your program of study, employer needs, current economic conditions, and other factors may affect wage levels.
Concord Law School recognizes and registers student groups that comply with the established procedures for registration of such groups. This registration remains in effect as long as the group conducts itself in accordance with Concord's policies and procedures. A proposed student group applies to the Dean of Students or the Dean's designee for recognition using the procedures and forms provided on the Concord School site. Once a group is recognized and registered, it must maintain a roster of at least 10 active members at all times. All members must be current JD or EJD students who are actively engaged in legal studies and who have access to the site. Should the number of active members fall below 10, the group may be delisted. The membership roster on the site is the official roster for group membership.
A recognized student group may use “Concord Law School” in its group's name. Concord supports registered student groups in a variety of ways, including with a link on the Concord School site under the Student Organizations tab, a bulletin board, and other technical support as appropriate.
Groups must specifically obtain permission from the Dean of Students or the Dean's designee to use the Concord Law School logo and may not have any other logo that identifies the group. See the Student Groups tab on the Concord School Site for further instructions on forming official student groups and student group guidelines. All Concord student groups are bound by the Code of Student Conduct and any other Concord policies that govern student behavior and communication on the Internet and elsewhere.
Student Accessibility Services
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is committed to providing an accessible online environment where all students have equal access. We support our students by providing reasonable accommodations. Accommodations can be permanent or temporary. Our goal is to provide students the ability to succeed on their educational journey.
Accommodations may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Course materials or textbooks in alternative formats
- Extended time for timed independent coursework
- Auxiliary aids and services (e.g., enlargement, dictation, audio programs)
It is your responsibility to request any necessary accommodations and recommended that you request them before starting the class or activity for which the accommodation(s) will be needed. Your request is voluntary, and information about your request or granted accommodations is confidential.
SAS is the primary office responsible for the coordination of these student services. You may make a request through PG Campus, Concord faculty or staff, or by contacting SAS directly.
