General Board / Law Schools that require less than 90 credits to get a JD
« on: November 22, 2014, 06:14:49 PM »
I got bored and looked up LLM stuff (just in case I ever wanted to punish myself someday for no good reason) and noticed that some ABA approved law schools appear to not require the full 90 credits for a JD.
example:
http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissions/facts/documents/2013-ABA-Standard-509-Information-Report.pdf
"Number of credit hours required to graduate 84"


I thought 90 credits was an ABA requirement?

General Off-Topic Board / Baby Names Illegal?
« on: October 18, 2014, 11:51:46 AM »
This article is a bit old, and I know it comes up every now and then, but I just thought about it again today.
How do you feel about courts saying to some people "you can't name your kid messiah" while others name their kid Jesus, Mohammad, etc? Plus the ones naming kids stuff like apple, or just painful things like antween or whatever.

Seems like a 1st amendment issue on top of a few other things. Any thoughts either for or against?

General Off-Topic Board / You can now be served by facebook!

This actually makes a lot of sense to me (as long as they can prove it is an active account) The only people that I can see complaining about this are deadbeats who also cry when the server "lies" to them by "tricking" them into admitting who they are (dressing as pizzaman,etc)

General Off-Topic Board / Is this a "bill or attainder" moment?

They OPENLY say it is to target a specific group (hobby lobby) sounds like a bill o attainder to me if it were an MBE question

Distance Education Law Schools / online ABA summer courses

I took a few that were considered "Distance Education" but still required us to attend in a classroom (as redundant as that sounds) but this might interest some people. Looks like pure online.

Distance Education Law Schools / Did you apply to ABA and CBE?
« on: May 28, 2014, 03:28:57 AM »
I am curious if our CBE students applied to ABA as well, or if they knew going into it that they only wanted to apply to CBE schools?
If you did apply to ABA, were you accepted and still chose the CBE option? If so why? If you have been enrolled for awhile now and/or graduated, do you still feel it was the right choice?

Not sure if you have this link already

http://web.wmitchell.edu/admissions/hybrid-program/

William Mitchell is proud to be the first ABA-accredited law school in the country to offer a part-time, on-campus/online J.D. program—known as the hybrid program.

The first-of-its-kind program starts in January 2015 and features two interrelated elements: intensive in-person experiential learning and online coursework that allows students to study the law from anywhere in the world

L.L.M. Board / we should replace the JD with an LLM.
« on: May 13, 2014, 09:47:32 PM »
Half of law school is electives anyways. Why waste peoples time with that an internships?
Just make it a condensed masters degree instead and add a mandatory year practicing under senior attorneys after the bar the way that medics have to do.
It would no doubt make better attorneys and save people time/money.
