To go DL and pass the CA bar, you must be good.

Kathleen Sullivan, the editor of my con law book and former dean of Stanford Law, failed the CA bar.

Agreed.

Lawafter40, I agree with you on many of your points.  Success is not measured on where you went to school, but on the results you can deliver in the real world.  I would never look down on anyone because of where they went to school.  If DL fits their needs, then I think it's a great option.  Also, a fancy law school and strong study habits does not guarantee you will pass the bar exam.  We had 3 associates who graduated in the top 20% of their Ivy League class fail the CA bar this year.  Penn, GTown, Harvard.  Go figure.

At what point did I say I anticipated having to interview? You all may be correct with regards to a "traditional" path, but that's most assuredly not the path I've chosen. Were I to do so, I would move my family, or commute the 250 miles RT to my local ABA school. I will not be interviewing. I will not be working as an associate, praying to make partner. I have a partnership waiting for me with a close friend's firm. Why would they offer me, a lowly "DL" grad, a partnership? Because I bring 20 years of hard-core business experience to the table, which all you lofty T1 grads will spend the next two decades developing for yourself. Because I have run successful and unsuccessful businesses. I have had to meet payroll. I have hired and fired. I have litigated and been litigated against. I have written and signed more contracts than most of you will ever write, and know what works and what doesn't. My POS "DL" degree, and California license, will only serve to ratify the knowledge and skills which I already possess.

For a bunch of aspiring attorneys, this group, in general, does a very poor job of reading the facts as I lay them out, without interjecting your own bias into the argument.

See you in court.  ;D
Your insecurities are so glaring; I can see them from every post you make. You are very hung up on what these 'kids' think, it's hilarious.

My views on distance learning and online law schools - if pass the bar, who cares where you went to law school. 

Everyone cares otherwise you would not put it on your resume.  When you go into an interview, which with a non-aba degree you will never have the chance to do, they care about where you went to school and your class rank.

If you pass the bar, there will be plenty of job available.  I know that class rank, school, etc matter if you want to go corporate, but most people that go DL have different goals...

The only person you are impressing lawafter40, is yourself.  Good for you, congratulations on your success.

I have lived/worked/grown up in Los Angeles and New York City.  I hear people make claims to being the Queen of England out here...

...and every waiter has a script. And every gaffer wants to direct. What's your point, if you're capable of making one?

I wasn't trying to impress anyone. I was responding to asinine and ignorant comments with factual rebuttal. You're boring me, child.

And you are apparently too stupid to know sarcasm when you read it.  I said multi-billion dollar empire because you make it sound like you have been there and done it all.  You preach to us about your DL education, and your full partnership upon graduation, but you are probably completely full of *&^%, or the firm you will be joining will consist of 1 or 2 lawyers.  All of your posts are the same, confrontational and self indulging. 

Also, calling me a child is quite stupid.  You are a few years older than I am, but you hardly act it.  I am quite sure I have seen much more of this world then you could ever dream of...

I would disagree with that statement duckasourus.  Online degrees are great for people who have already established a successful career, especially if they want to go into consulting.  While working with and for the SEC, I found many arbitrators and judges who had online degrees. 

Kids around here think they know everything.  I need a drink...

@ lawafter40  ::)

Right.  Your multiple Emmy Awards and multi billion dollar empire that you are currently sitting on as you read Law School Discussion and instigate arguments with 22 year olds...  I can smell the bullsh*t from

WUSTL has been a very well respected school for a long time, and not just for their law school.  It's not as though word just got out on this, we have summer associates from there all the time (I work in Los Angeles at one of the big firms).

I agree with landrover, but if it is true, it is fantastic!
