Abstract

In January 2015, William Mitchell College of Law will launch the first American Bar Association (ABA)-approved, on-campus/online J.D. program to further the college's mission: to provide accessible, experiential, rigorous training for tomorrow's lawyers. Known as the hybrid program, it will offer a legal education to talented, hard-working students who cannot access a traditional J.D. program because of location or family or work commitments. In this article, we explain the origins and pedagogical foundations of the program, as well as give an overview of the program.

Keywords: legal education, law school, technology, educational technology
