General Board / Law School and Small Practice...
« on: November 09, 2004, 07:08:11 AM »
I'm currently at Clemson Univ. and plan on going to law school next year.  If I"m just planning going into a small practice and not big law, does it really matter what law school I attend and my graduating rank? 

For instance, I know an attorney who went to a non-ABA school(One that doesn't even exist anymore) and he is in a 2 partner practice bringing in $150,000 a year.

If I plan on practicing law in my own state, and I decide/or I'm forced to go to a state accredited Law School(ie.  John Marshall Law School-Atlanta), what are the major differences in ABA vs. Non-ABA approved other than practicing in other states?
