Distance Education Law Schools / Re: West Coast School of Law

Will,

I looked at the websites of all but one of the correspondence schools that are registered with the Committee of Bar Examiners. (I didn't look into West Haven University because it required an authorization code to enter the website.)  If the school was in my price range, I telephoned to ask about method of instruction and testing procedures if this information wasn't on the website.

The cost of Northwestern is in my ballpark, but I don't like their method of instruction and testing procedures.  They use Blackboard and proctored final exams.  I've taken classes that use Blackboard, where there's a question of the week to be discussed.  I found it to be a waste of time.  Since I don't want or need either a proctored exam or Blackboard, I crossed Northwestern off my list. I'm currently looking into in University of Honolulu School of Law, which is in Modesto, CA, and Southern University for Professional Studies School of Law.

Will,

Thanks for the information and site referral. I like the school's bare bones approach and cost. I'm somewhat concerned that an e-mail and telephone call have gone unanswered. I guess that also counts as "information."  Taft has accepted me, but the cost, I think, is beyond my range.

Is anyone currently attending this school?  What's your opinion of the quality of education?  Have you heard how SB 1568 will affect the school?  Any other relevant information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Distance Education Law Schools / Executive Juris Doctor degree

Is anyone in the executive juris doctor program who can offer information/advice? I know it doesn't prepare for the bar, but my goal is to have a solid legal knowledge.  I've done distance education before, so I know what's involved.  I've been thinking of Taft because Concord is too expensive and I thought the online application for NWCUL was too intrusive. I'd appreciate hearing what you have to say about the value of the program at various schools.  Thanks.
