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

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

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.

General Board / How many actually grew up WANTING to be lawyer?
« on: May 13, 2014, 09:36:13 PM »
Be honest, what was the REAL reason you did it?
Failed the MCAT?
Applied while drunk?
lost a bet?

General Off-Topic Board / Feb vs July bar exam scaled scores
« on: May 13, 2014, 05:43:30 PM »
I know that feb has a lot lower pass rate in many areas due to more repeaters taking it, but do you think that makes the scale easier too? (since the people sitting it are not as likely to "blow the curve", or in reality come anywhere near passing in most situations)

It seems as dead as dead gets
