Summer presents a special opportunity to meet student course needs and help close budget gaps. But Summer enrollments are down, as students pursue jobs and internships in varied locations.
To help schools gain incremental revenue during low enrollment periods, iLaw partners with law schools to deliver online, real-time summer courses taught by renowned professors from ABA-accredited law schools. Following our successful 2014-2017 Summer programs and the liberalization of ABA Standard 306, we will increase the number of courses delivered in Summer 2018. Faculty serves as visiting or adjunct faculty at each school, which awards the academic credit.

How it Works
iLaw delivers online law school summer courses to our partner schools, scheduled optimally for students.
- We contract with the professors and provide all technical support. You pay no expenses.
- You decide which of the courses to offer. Students enroll using your standard procedure in courses already approved in your catalog.
- School’s award their academic credit. These classes are the school’s courses. iLaw has no accreditation itself.
- Students log into Summer courses using their computers via your school’s website.
- We provide the platform and tech support, but will be invisible to your students.
- School administrators can monitor the classes live or through archived video.
- Your academic policies govern. The professor takes roll, grades exams, and delivers the grades consistent with your school’s system.
- Software records attendance; that information is given to each school about the students.
Our goal is academic excellence, which we deliver by hiring recognized, award-winning scholars.
- Summer teachers have diverse backgrounds, varied substantive expertise and are fully trained in online pedagogy.
- Platform orientation is provided to students and any necessary technical support during the semester.
- School administrators may monitor every class—either live or as recorded, and conduct their own student evaluations.
- Students interact with Faculty through message boards, chat rooms, online faculty office hours and email.
- Synchronous courses allow faculty-student interaction comparable to a traditional classroom.
- Engaged-Asynchronous courses allow faculty-student interaction flexible with student schedules.
iLaw is not an ABA accredited entity. In courses offering academic credit, the partner law school may use its accreditation to award course credit.
