General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Taking a class at another school
« on: May 05, 2008, 02:25:56 PM »
Question: If I am attending a part time law school, am I permitted (ABA regs etc.) to take classes at another school at the same time? EG: If I am interested in taking a theology class through a seminary school at the same time, is this ok? Another example would be an online MBA program where you can get the MBA in 1-year online. Assuming one has the time, is this legit?

Where should I go next fall? / Health Law
« on: April 09, 2008, 03:03:56 PM »
Question for anyone with wisdom on this topic. I have been accepted to a couple part time programs, including U of San Diego and St. Loius U. I am interested in health law and the many opportunities that the field offers beyond just practicing law. It seems to me that in the same way a lawyer who has a specialty in real estate can go into more entrepreneural fields, a lawyer with a focus on health care could work in health care management, sales, consulting etc., therby not limiting one to a life in law.

My questions:

1) Is this an accurate way to look at things? For example, if I were to go to St. Louis and do the health care track, am I really going to have opportunities beyond law? Let's assume I get the JD and also a certificate in health law from St. Louis.

2) How much emphasis should one place on the specialty rankings? EG: I would rather move to San Diego, but since St. Loius has been ranked #1 for health law forever, would I have opportunities outside of St. Loius in health care if I go there? And would I really receive a that much more xpertise by going there that could land me a consulting job, sales job, or law job outside St. Louis?

3) Would I be just as well off going to San Diego and working as a health care consultant, sales etc. during the day, or in a role at a local hospital?

Thanks for the feedback! These questions apply to anyone looking at going somewhere just for the specialty I suppose. If it is the case that St. Louis is so nationally recognized in health law that my opportunities would be greatly enhanced, then perhaps it is worth going there, I don't know...
