Online Law Schools / Re: West Coast School of Law (Formerly CCLS)

As I recall, it was the cheapest--but something about their presentation just didn't look right to me.

That is a totally subjective opinion, I realize.

Have you read "The Law School Bible," by Peter Loughlin?  You can get a new copy on for about $20.00.  I would recommend read that, and then if you still go with West Coast, you'll know you made the right decision.

(I would consider spending a couple extra bucks for Northwestern California University; but I don't "have a dog in this hunt," as we say in the South.)

Good luck to you, whatever you do!

One option that not too many people know about is that you can get your JD from a distance-learning school in about 3 years, then attempt to get accepted to an ABA school that has an LL.M. (Legum Master) program and get a post-Doctorate Master.  Depending on how long it takes to complete one's Master's Thesis, a post-Doctorate Master can be completed in as quick as one year.

This would, in a way, put you in the top 3% of legal professionals, since only about 3% of practicing lawyers have a post-Doctorate Master.  It also cancels out the "stigma"--real or imagined--of the distance-learning school.

(This strategy would, of course, be contingent on acceptance by the ABA school into their LL.M. program.)


Does anyone know of--or want to start--a study group for distance-learning law school students in the Atlanta, GA area?

I am a first-year student at NWCU.

Thank you,
