Why not? The rules and regulations of the ABA were written a very long time ago. And I dont doubt that not all online schools are created equal, I would even go as far as to agree that there are maybe only 2 that are worth it, and by no means I am saying make it easy; therefore I disagree with your comment "online schools dont cut it" because the research indicates otherwise. There are plenty of lawyers out there that are irresponsible and completed their education at an ABA accredited school. The school you attend does not make you more or less responsible, the ABA might not want it because its all about the politics and of course the money. As long as you and I receive the same level and quality of education, and we are administered the same examination and held to the same standards; there is no reason why not to allow a student from an non traditional law school to sit for the Bar at whatever state. I say give online schools students an additional exam and let them prove themselves. Challenge the system because its discriminating, most students that take the online route are already professionals, parents, business people and they work twice as hard to make it, GIVE THAM A CHANCE. Are you afraid we are going to do better than you are?
