It's late and I just finished a 4hr LSAT study session on LG's so I just copied this from a post I made earlier. I too was looking at this situation when I first started considering applying to law schools. Now, it's ABA or the highway as far as I can tell. Here you go:
First CBE accredited schools which are California Bar accredited schools. (I believe a few other states have some as well, but not many) These schools cater to the non traditional students and offer part time programs at night for 4 yrs. This is a link to UWLA which has a campus in the west valley and one by LAX. http://www.uwla.edu/
This school I believe also has a FT day program for 3yrs as well. Another school I know is the University of Glendale College of Law.
The Good: You do not need to sit for the Baby-Bar. And yes, this is considered even harder than the actual bar. Most of the schools that are Non-ABA aproved are on-line programs. The reason for the BB-Bar is that the LSAT is not required for these schools. Neither is a college degree for that matter. Anyway, CBE schools do require the LSAT, but a 143 or above and you're in. You also don't neccessarily need a bachelors degree either, an AA or 60-80 CLEP credits suffices. They cost about 1/2 what the ABA charge and at UWLA if you score a 150 or above on the LSAT, they'll give you a 1/2 ride.
Now, THE BAD: No federal financial aid. All private loans and most schools, UWLA being the exception, offer no scholorships. The CA Bar passage rate is below 25%. What good is the degree if you can't practice. For five years, once licensed, you will only be able to practice in CA or a state any other state that accepts the degree. NOT MANY DO!! After that, about 1/2 to 2/3 of the states will let you sit for their bar if you are in good standing. The career placement centers at these schools, if any, are nothing but glorified Craigslists. The networking of alumni that most students utilize at their schools is slim to say the least. UWLA touts the have 100 sitting judges in LA. A tiny drop in the bucket. Can anyone succeed. Yes. Some have made it work and work out well for themselves. But the numbers are miniscule. Your law degree will always be on your resume and for good or bad, the school you go to has a stigma attached. Let me put it another way. Look up on the various threads here what people say about a T4 school in Michigan, Cooley. Cooley would be considered the Yale/Harvard of the CBE/Online Non-ABA world.
The more research I did, and yes, many here came to my rescue, the more I realized an ABA school is the only logical choice for me. There just is too much money involved to make any poor decisions on a matter such as this.
