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?

With those types of results and so many prospective students that can benefit from the long distance learing how we are not doing anything about it?  I invite all those of you feel the same way to participate.

Dear Students or Prospective Students

Why not start a petition that we can all sign and send to the ABA.  Based on the Argument by the Concord Student to the Mass Supreme Court we could perhaps unite and all sign a petition or some kind of brief (maybe Concord) would even support us that we are allowed to sit for the Bar just like any other student.  I compared Concord for example to other traditional schools and I believe their education is superior to many other schools, how many of you would like to particiate in this ?  Let me know, we can make it happen.

As recent as yesterday, I research this and 100% non existent.

I actually saw the argument by the Concord student who represented himself.  It is a good first baby step.  I personally think is very unfair to deny students that have the same credentials and education the opportunity to practice law if they possess a JD just like any other - just because students attend regular conventional law schools does not make better or more qualified lawyers.  I am a paralegal with 20 experience in Tort Law and I challenge any new attorney out of law school to ask me any question in this field.

Thank you for the information, I actually looked it up last night after speaking with the Admissions officer from Concord.  They are very professional and very honest in what they tell you.  I just think I am going to try the traditional law school and see what happens.  The LSAT is my biggest obstable.  I have 20 years plus of legal experience but after talking with Concord I realized that although they seem to be very good, and making advancements in this field its really too early to know if the ABA is ever going to accept this kind of education.  Its too bad b/c I really researched the school and they are as good as any other or even better than some.  The draw back for me I dont want to leave the state I am in.  Thank you for the information.

A score of 140 on the LSAT is not that bad if you study more you could probably raise it, Thomas Cooley and Texas Law Schools have p/t programs and with a LSAT score of about 146 you could probably make it, I am currently studying for the LSAT , but was looking at other options as I hate the  LSAT and I suck at it, I  have been a paralegal for 20 years and I want to do what I do for myself but the problem is the BAR - I do want to be a TRIAL attorney is what I love, just cant get passed the LSAT thing... ???

Does anyone know of a law school such as Concord or Novus that have accreditation that will allow you sit for the Florida Bar?
