We threw away our original “plain Jane” curriculum that everyone else has, and present to you our Executive J.D. Degrees for the many careers not involving the practice of law as a licensed attorney.
And Here They Are:
Juris Doctor (J.D.) in Business Law: This is our new Flagship Offering predicted to be our most popular. Many lawyers are engaged in business-related careers. This JD is all business and covers among other things: Contracts; Sales and Warranties; Banking and Financing; Company Formation; Starting and Managing a Crowdfunding IPO; Learn How to File a Small Corporate Offering Registration (SCOR) for Intrastate Offering of Stock; Operating a Small Business; Intellectual Property and Licensing; Agency and Representing Creatives; How Insurance Works; Launching and Promoting an e-Commerce Site; Outline of Federal Taxation.
Juris Doctor (J.D.) in Securities Law and Crowdfunding: All about MONEY. Help others as consultant to raise money or launch your own Reg CF Crowdfunding IPO. A three year online curriculum featuring 27 blockbuster courses to teach you not only the regulations, but the practicalities of actually registering a Crowdfunding Offering, including how to prepare the Reg CF Form C, stock transfer agents, comparison of crowdfunding platforms, how to properly organize a company incorporation for crowdfunding, the Pink sheets listing and why that might be effective. Also covered is an overview of State and Federal securities law, Blue Sky laws, and the very important Small Corporate Offering Registration (SCOR) for an intrastate IPO. Not only will you graduate with a J.D. degree, but you will be empowered with the knowledge about how raising money works, and the tools to put that knowledge into practice!
Juris Doctor (J.D.) in Human Resources and Employment Law: Another huge field. In addition to Contract and Agency Law, we present the basics of Compensation and Benefits; Training and Development, Employee Engagement, Retention and Termination; Diversity and Inclusion; Global and Cultural Awareness; Risk Management; Talent Acquisition; Employment Laws and Regulations; Wage and Employee Benefits; ERISA Plans; Workplace Safety; Discrimination and Disability; Privacy; Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment Insurance; Workers Compensation Claims Process.
Juris Doctor (J.D.) in Regulatory Affairs and Compliance: Typical employers in this sector are Banks, Insurance Firms, Food and Drug, Financial Services, Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical Companies, Technology, Consumer Goods, Energy, Healthcare, and Federal and State Government Agencies such as the FDA. Even local zoning offices as well as State and City Management Offices require Compliance Officers. This JD specialty is best understood by a review of relevant job titles: Ethics Compliance Officer, Director of Compliance and Ethics, Compliance Officer, Chief Compliance Officer, Compliance Analyst, Senior/Compliance Manager, Business Compliance Project Manager, Risk and Regulatory Compliance Manager, AML Policy Advisory Analyst, Compliance Associate, Compliance/AML Training Consultant, Fraud Investigator; and also Regulatory Affairs Associate, Regulatory Affairs Specialist, Regulatory Affairs Analyst, Regulatory and Compliance Associate.

An impressive degree to walk into an interview with.
Lawyer vs Attorney
The Blue Marble University J.D. degree is an Executive Degree for lawyers. Although many times used interchangeably, persons are generally considered “lawyers” if they have obtained a J.D. degree, even though not licensed nor having passed any bar exam. “Attorneys” are those with J.D. degrees that have passed a State Bar Exam and have become licensed to practice law and to give legal advice. Many international law students that complete our Doctor of Laws program can practice law in their home countries depending on that country’s rules.
The Blue Marble University Law School offers a way to obtain a J.D. degree without a traditional law school- an “Executive” J.D. as found in some California Law Schools…a Doctor of Laws Degree (JD) that can be completed entirely online in 3 years. This Distance Education law school program also accepts High School graduates and Home Schoolers into an accelerated 5 year program that concludes with the issuance of a combined BA/JD in Law. If you are looking for an exciting, affordable law degree program, we have it.
Please Note: Completion of this program does not qualify any graduate to become a licensed attorney in the USA. The purpose of our JD program is to offer Doctor of Law Degrees to students and working adults for purposes of career advancement and not for the purpose of becoming a licensed attorney in the USA. Our program is not approved by the American Bar Association. Depending on your country, if you are an international student, our Doctor of Law degree (JD) may qualify you to practice law in your country.
The Blue Marble University Law School J.D. Law Degree is a great degree for women; and for everyone, it offers the means and opportunities to start a career, build on an existing career, or change careers altogether!
Admission Requirements: For the three year online Doctor of Laws degree (JD), applicants should have a minimum of a Bachelors Degree in any field, or its equivalent. For the five year combined BA/JD online degree program, applicants should have a High School Diploma or other indicia of having attained a secondary education. Home schoolers are always welcome.

Who’s In Charge?
We take up the law of business…and the business of law.
What can you do with our degree in Law?
Probably a lot more than you thought!!
(A) Practice of Law as a licensed attorney? Our Law Degree program is similar to several California Law Schools that offer a popular Executive JD Degree in Law that do not require students to take the California Bar Exam. With a JD from Blue Marble, you cannot practice law as a licensed attorney in the USA. You can operate a law office, but only licensed attorney employees may advise clients and prepare legal documents. International students, depending on their country, may find our Law Degree extremely useful and may be able to use it to practice law as an attorney. In Thailand, which is just one example, a person may practice law and operate a law office with only a Bachelors Degree in law. There is no licensing required, except to become Judges or Trial Attorneys, and even then, this can be accomplished with only a BA in Law from anywhere plus some additional training. But the main thing to understand is that our Law Degree is not intended to be used for the purpose of practicing law in the USA as a licensed attorney, because our degree is not accepted in the USA for this purpose.
(B) Careers, Jobs, and Opportunities you can pursue with a Blue Marble University Law School Degree, without the need to become a licensed attorney:
— Careers in every industry, every business, and every governmental agency.
–Police Officers, and Police Department Management: A law degree gives an excellent background and training to become a Police Officer or to Manage Police Departments in small towns, federal state and local agencies, work as part of corporate security forces, work as private investigator, become an FBI agent, or join various other governmental police investigative departments.
–Hospital and Medical Management: Our degree prepares you for positions of management in a hospital or other medical facility because you will learn about medical insurance and other hospital management procedures.
–In House Attorney for corporate and small business law offices: You do not need to be a licensed attorney to work as an attorney in a corporate legal office, nor for most state and federal governmental agencies. In most states as long as you are an “in house” attorney, you are permitted without a law license to draft legal documents for your employer, to negotiate labor contracts or any kind of contract, to report on legal issues, and to hire and supervise outside legal counsel relating to court proceedings.
–Tax Attorney: Generally speaking, you do not have to be a licensed attorney in order to work as a tax attorney for the US Internal Revenue Department, and most State and local government tax departments. You cannot practice in the US Tax Court, of course, but there are many auditing positions, tax review positions, and other legal positions in tax agencies that do not require an attorney to be licensed. A typical position is that found in a tax agency office, managing tax accounts. A J.D. degree is needed for some top level IRS positions. For example, for the position as “Tax Specialist”, the IRS website states: “General requirements include US citizenship, plus a four-year degree or legal or tax accounting experience that required knowledge of federal tax laws and regulations. You could also be eligible for higher grades if you possess a JD.”
–Insurance Adjuster and Insurance Claims Manager: Every insurance company operates claims offices all over the USA which negotiate settlement of various kinds of insurance claims, such as claims for personal injuries, fire damage, workers compensation claims, property loss, or maritime losses. Insurance companies prefer law graduates for these positions, but because court work is not required, a law license is not essential. You will work with outside counsel as needed.
–Securities issuance and fraud: There are many state and federal agencies involved in the issuance of securities such as stocks, bonds, debentures, limited partnership interests and so forth. Lawyers are required for investigation, creation of securities, and issuance of securities. One is not required to be a licensed attorney to become employed in legal departments relating to the law of securities.
–Financial businesses and governmental offices involved in money. Financial firms, banks, treasury offices, governmental accounting offices, and governmental offices relating to finance regularly hire attorneys and no license is required.
–Debt Collections: Well, somebody has to do it. Many Debt Collection businesses need attorneys to advise them as to debt collection law. Most State and local governments need people with law degrees to write new laws and to manage debt collection departments.
–Own and Operate a Law Firm: Although you cannot practice law as a licensed attorney, you can in fact own and operate your own law firm. There are many law firms that are owned by non-attorneys. So long as you hire licensed attorneys to work for you and to handle the advice giving, you can have your own law business. Another entry avenue would be to joint venture with a practicing attorney as branch office for that attorney. The Blue Marble program will teach you how to operate a law business. There are some state laws regulating who can own a law office, but there is usually a legal workaround.
–Create a Legal Forms Business: Many successful lawyers don’t practice law at all, but rather, operate a legal forms business which delivers forms to customers, such as House Sales Contracts and the like. Many of these businesses can be created on the internet. Although this type of business is generally permissible, you should check your specific State’s rules for the limits on what you can and cannot do.
–Legal Research: You can do legal research and write law reports as a consultant or as a member of the various legal research firms which supply research reports to law firms and government, and also as an employee of the large law book services engaged in annotating, reviewing, and cataloging new court opinions. Usually a law degree is required for such positions, but licensing is definitely not.
–Human Resources: A law degree makes an excellent credential for work in Human Resources, Personnel Management, and Labor departments of corporations and government.
–Public Administration: A law degree prepares the graduate for a multitude of positions in public administration as well as administrative positions with private sector corporations.
–Military: Thinking of a military career?? A law degree will greatly enhance your promotion potential.
–Entrepreneurship: Activities such as starting a business, forming corporations, and running businesses successfully can all be enhanced by a law degree. Knowing about contract formation, labor laws, liability issues, and how to look at costs and profit all are improved with a law degree.
–Arbitration: You do not need to be a licensed lawyer to be an Arbitrator or Mediator for many groups and organizations, including most arbitration associations.
–Medical Device and Pharmaceutical Companies: These companies need attorneys for the drafting of documents, performing risk management, investigating regulatory compliance, and many other tasks. No license is required for these positions.
–Crowdfunding: Use this new platform to help others raise money and market their stock offerings.
