The School of Law dual programs are administered entirely
on-line. Currently, the school utilizes a “state of art” college
management system. Specifically developed Learning Modules
including evaluations were developed to enable students
to attain degree program objectives through the Distance
Learning education method. Through this system, the program
objectives are achieved in a flexible, but sensible manner via
Distance Learning (DL).
Each Learning Module includes the course syllabus, learning
objectives, textbook chapters, key terms, assignments, midterm
examinations, case studies and the final exam. Written
assignments may be in any one of the following formats:
essays, problems, case study, critical thinking papers, and
mini-research project. This process ensures that the Law School
students, upon successful completion of a course, have the opportunity
to demonstrate that they have attained the goals and
objectives for the program. Independent study is an important
part of overall academic strategy as well. Students are given
outside reading, research, and assignments, to compliment
their online learning.
