Legal education expert brings more than four decades of experience to All Campus
Chicago (April 27, 2021) –– All Campus, which partners with leading, traditional higher education institutions to grow online enrollment and maximize market share, today announced the appointment of Stephen Burnett as an advisor as the company expands its law school program expertise and offerings.
Burnett brings more than four decades of legal industry expertise, specifically in online legal education and technology, to All Campus. In his new role with the company, Burnett will tap into his extensive background and experience, working closely with All Campus’ research and partnership development teams to lead the company’s expansion into the growing field of law program partnerships and online education offerings in the legal space.
“I’m very excited to join the All Campus team,” said Burnett. “I look forward to working with All Campus and law school programs nationwide to develop strong partnerships that incorporate online education, technology and flexibility to transform the traditional law degree. The rapid growth of online enrollment in legal master’s degree programs is a key indicator that online legal education is in high demand, and online program managers can play a critical role in assisting law schools with their online offerings — including the launch of a hybrid Juris Doctor program.”
Prior to joining All Campus, Burnett served as Director of Experiential and Online Learning for Carolina Academic Press, where he was responsible for creating online partnerships with and developing simulation content for law schools. Previously, he spent four years as Kaplan University’s Vice President of Legal Education, where he later transitioned to the Special Advisor to the President of Kaplan.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Stephen to the All Campus team,” said Joe Diamond, CEO of All Campus. “Stephen’s tenured legal background, directly consulting with law schools in the area of online/hybrid education, makes him the perfect person to lead All Campus’ legal offerings and shape thoughtful and sustainable partnerships with our university partners. Last year underscored the need for more flexibility in legal education, and Stephen will help strengthen All Campus’ strategic decisions and expansion.”
According to the American Bar Association (ABA), in 2019, 37% of students enrolled in a non-JD legal program are enrolled online, a 32% increase year-over-year. All Campus launched its first law school partnership with Northeastern University School of Law in April of 2020 with two programs: Master of Legal Studies (MLS) and Master of Laws (LLM). The latter program is designed specifically for attorneys that have an existing Juris Doctor or law degree from a foreign school and need credentials to sit for the bar in the United States.
