Just my two cents, but if one takes a step back to view this debate as an analogous argument, wouldn't one see that the refusal of the ABA to grant accreditation to Online law schools is the same as a CO-OP Board refusing to admit a potential tenant/buyer? Both are exercising their right to discriminate (which in either scenario is perfectly legal), but are they acting in the best interest of themselves with regards to survival of the entity?
25 years ago did anyone really think that we would be able to "post" comments on something called the Internet? Maybe so, maybe not; regardless, Online law schools are here. So is it time for the ABA have a serious discussion about its policies regarding the accreditation? Why not, it currenlty approves of some Online courses provided through B&M LS, and I suppose the ABA can just excersise its right to just not listen.
Whatever the outcome of the debate will be, it probably will not be decided for some time to come. But in the meantime, we'll condinue to debate, go to school, and live big.
