Online Law Schools / Re: My Savior Duckasouras

if you do then why defend someone makng a joke out of your degree.  People who go to law school without the needed inteligence (aka fake law schools) deserve to be ridiculed.  They mock our profession, but the bar keeps our profession valid.  Sorry aloha but you will NEVER pass, and texas I have faith u will fail too although I am sure S Africa will take you, and well I hope you go there.

I simply believe that after a person has weighed their alternatives, their choice should be respected rather than ridiculed. There are countless people who could ridicule you for the choice you made (of course if it was stanford, then that group of people might be limited to harvard and yale grads - or perhaps med students might mock you for becoming a lawyer...who knows).

The bar does keep our profession valid...AND THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT THAT YOU MAKE...and the fact that it does allow for non aba graduates to pass, even if only a rare few do, legitimizes the alternative methods of education that you ridicule.

As for me, I'm doin' fine ducky...   ;D

you are talking about getting an education in south africa are u serious?  Also most states require a degree from an ABA school to take the bar.  As for NY that throughout the period of the applicant’s study, the law school or schools attended was each recognized by the competent accrediting agency of the government of such other country, or a political subdivision thereof, as qualified and approved;that throughout the period of the applicant’s study, the law school or schools attended was each recognized by the competent accrediting agency of the government of such other country, or a political subdivision thereof, as qualified and approved;  Um I doubt that education would satisfy any ones requirements.  As for my own state, our bar exam and the baby bar for the fake students keeps the idiots from practicing law.

To simplify what you quoted: The degree has to be recognized in the country where it was awarded. Thus, if the South African govt. recognizes the degree, it is fine. This simply keeps people from applying to overseas diploma mills to receive their degree.

There is another stipulation that the law degree has to be based on English Common Law...so I believe that South Africa, a former colony, would qualify...but as I said before - people should look into this to verify before choosing this route...

So yes, according to both NY and CA law, you can earn a foreign degree in law and still qualify to sit the bar...you may have to take additional classes (I believe NY requires 20 hours at an ABA school) - sorry ducky

and California accepts foreign educated law students as well:

http://www.calbar.ca.gov/calbar/pdfs/admissions/sf_legal-edu-outside-us.pdf

I guess that means that you CAN complete a foreign law degree, and still pass the bar for the 2 biggest legal markets in the country (CA and NY)...

C'mon duck, you should at least know the rules in your own state...

I agree after you get a job your school doesnt matter as much but firms can never ignore a non aba degree.  The simple truth is that malpractice insurance is extremelly expensive and fake law degrees only make that price sky rocket.  There are soo many bad law schools that are still ABA that the people who can not get into them have no business being in law school.  You may disagree with me but look at the bar passage rates from fake schools.

What is really sad is that the guys over on XOXO have found this thread, and even they think you are losing this discussion...

even if you get an llm from an aba school you can NOT take the bar if your jd is from a non aba school.

Just to prove how wrong you are:

BTW - for those serious about the DL route...you might look for overseas programs such as those in South Africa that allow for DL. They are fully accredited (in that country). This would probably allow you to then do a US LLM and sit for the bar in selected states...but look into it for yourself, as I am unsure of all the applicable regulations...

As far as not knowing things I graduated from a tier 1 school in California and passed the bar on the first try, so I know the law.

I guess they don't teach comma usage at California tier 1 schools....
