Syracuse U. plans hybrid JD program

The Syracuse University College of Law announced plans to partner with 2U Inc. to create a hybrid online Juris Doctor program if approved by the New York State and American Bar associations.

The J.D. program would feature live, face-to-face online classes and course content delivered through 2U’s platform. 2U Inc. is an education technology company that partners with institutions to bring degree programs online.

To date, only one other program that has a hybrid online program has received the ABA’s approval, according to The Wall Street Journal. That program is Mitchell Hamline School of Law in Minnesota. Other state accredited schools in California offer online law degrees.
