I know that some states allow "reading for the law" to take bar exam without schooling, but is there any state or territory that lets you take it without either? I heard it once, but I doubt it's true. If anyone knows anything on it let me know. I am curious.

Distance Education Law Schools / LoopHole
« on: April 09, 2008, 06:59:38 PM »
Some distance law schools that are bar approved are not even proctored and mostly self paced by mail even for some(and online). The first year bar exam sucks, but if you take your first year at a state accredited college(even non ABA approved) you can be exempt from that exam. Even if your GPA was too low to continue in the old school. That means the cal state bar will let you get exempt from the mini bar even if you get all D's and kicked out of the old state school for low(but not fully failing) grades. Not recommended for all, but an interesting loophole that I found while reading the offical bar examiners book.

Distance Education Law Schools / New College of Law
« on: March 23, 2008, 02:23:26 PM »
I noticed that several non-aba approved law schools are still nationally and regionally accredited in addition to being state accredited or state approved. One of them WAS "New College" now I notice that their website is down, and they are not regionally accredited anymore. I also notice that Astrive student loans no longer offers loans for them either. That is odd to me since other non-aba ones such as "northern cal law" that are not regional but state accredited are on Astrive's loan approved list. Any one have any more info on this?

It seems that many posts here dont even actually care about the subject of distance learning law. It will be curious to see how many of us are actually interested in it and how many are just wasting the other members time.

Distance Education Law Schools / state accredited law schools
« on: February 03, 2008, 05:16:22 PM »
Theres so much talk here on non-accredited and distance learning law schools that people seem to forget about state accredited law schools. They are non-aba approved but are often regionally accredited, full time(3year) on campus and approved for federal and state student loans. What are peoples opinions on those?

Distance Education Law Schools / Novus and other fake schools
« on: January 29, 2008, 05:31:34 PM »
I noticed some posts about Novus. Has anyone actually enrolled in it? How much did you pay before finding out the truth? What about other fake schools(non bar approved). Lets vent about it folks, lets here it.

Law Firms / apprenticeships
« on: January 28, 2008, 09:03:20 PM »
In some states you can get an apprenticeship and sit the bar without a full JD. Has anyone actually known of anyone that did that? If so how did they find the job, and what did they think it was like for them? Did they pass the bar after it?

Distance Education Law Schools / student loans for non accredited schools
« on: January 27, 2008, 02:06:25 PM »
I will most likely use a bar accredited college, but some are non-accredited bar approved, so you can still be licensed. Astrive only covers accredited ones. In theory is there any loan agency that covers non accredited bar approved schools for student loans? If so list it.
