National Law School is the newest online law school to open.  I encourage everyone to look more into our program at www.nationallawschool.net

We have put together a fantastic program, and would like to know if anyone has any questions for us.

Watch the video.  Even LSAC is telling potential students to be very careful of going into debt.  If you go to a tier 4, think of the debt.  These LSAC videos answer your question, the guy at the end of the movie feels he is years behind someone with the same degree because he is in so much debt.

You will have to wait a few years.  We will become ABA approved and we will develop some really great technology.  Any business, law school or career takes a long time to build.  We have a vision and we are not going to stop until it is accomplished.  Like I said, we appreciate the comments, but if you think you can just open up a school in a day you are very wrong.  Do you know how complicated it is to get degree granting authority in any state, let alone to grant J.D. degrees?  Do you think the California State Bar will just register any law school?  Do you have any idea of the work involved to start a law school?  How many lawyers are out there, how many people start a law school?

Has anyone see the virtual poker rooms? (party poker, poker stars, etc)  Why can that not be done to ensure the Socratic Method is used.  Imagine you are in a seat in law school, you can see your professor, they can see you, you can see other students.  You can even break into groups, talk amond yourselves, ask questions which the rest of the class can hear and be answered immediatly by the professor.

I plan to totally replicate the law school environment.  Oh and of course, live deposition technology.  A court reporter uses her steno to type out the transcripts of the class in real time.  You can annotate them, take notes, hightliight stuff etc.  It is all linked to the live class, you can go and review it etc.

Look at how many schools are adding elearning platforms?  The developer of that platform is in great shape, and we just happen to know 100 Indian guys willing to do the job.

We all appreciate your comments and concerns, everyone at National is dedicated to this law school, the software we will build and our ability to bring all education to those who want and desire it.

I actually said in the 140's.  I maintain if an above average students briefly looks over the LSAT pre book they will get in the 140's.

You have to apply to National, we turn down students all the time that are not qualified or not a good fit for our program.

Not everyone can go to an ABA approved law school.  They have children, they have financial obligations and commitments.  You must not have much experience in life if you can not understand that.

Many legal jobs, the 25-75 percent pay range of the legal field, those jobs are gotten through personal connectoin, reputation and track record.

If you have worked for a law firm or have connections in the legal community, you have a good chance to get a job.  Every state is different too, some states there is still a big need for lawyers. You can go to HK or Austalia even and practice.  Some people want to represent their own business or friends.  

You want this knowledge guarded, I want it spread. We have millionaire business men apply who just always wanted to be a lawyer but can't break their daily schedule to go back to school.  It goes on and on.

National is open to any unique circumstances or students.  We want as many people as possible to know this is an option, and then we will pick from the very best candidates.  Most of our students are older, we certainly do look at students right out of high school who make a good case that they are a good fit and qualified for our program.

National students are not fresh out of college. You fail to understand this.  Someone who finishes our program is typically in their 30's or 40's.  Some have 10 years as a paralegal or clerk. They come to us normally after years of experience, varying graduate degrees.  Not everyone figures out what they really want to do in life when they are twenty one.
