BTW, there is a lot of talk about if someone goes to an online school they won't be able to get a job.  Many threads by grads of traditional schools focus on getting a job.  Can get, hope to get, can't get.  A job.

A lawyer not being able to find a job has nothing to do with their online law J.D degree. There are lots of lawyers that attended brick and mortar ABA approved J.D programs that find can't work as lawyers either. If they can't a find work it's because they are not good writers or good public speakers. Most law firms will require a sample of the applicant's writing in addition to a face to face interview.

The new lawyers are failing the writing sample part of the interviews. Has nothing to do with where they attended law school.

I see ads in the online employment section all the time for associate attorneys. The employer does not care where you attended law school, he only cares whether you passed the state bar exam in that state. He would rather hire a licensed attorney that passed a state bar, and pay him/her the same money he would pay an unlicensed paralegal.

I think something is wrong with lawyers that say they can't find a job. If they can't find a job, then why not open up their own office and make their own job? As stated, their writing sample given to the employer is subpar and that is why they cant find a job.

The public defender office in every state are always hiring. However, they demand a writing sample. 

... You can also take the English QLTS after two years because England has a reciprocity agreement with California, same with the Ireland QLTT. You will not be welcomed in any other state besides California and DC.

QLTS? Tell us more.


I'm genuinely curious about this.  Please tell me why you think it would be better to take one class at a time

Ask your mommy. I'm beginng to think there are a bunch of retards on this forum. I quit posting to this forum a while back and I am going to stop posting again. Too many uneducated people on here asking stupid common sense questions. I'm not responding to to stupid questions.

EVERY State bar within the United States of America will accept a foreign law degree as long as it is from a common law country. There is no argument about it. We accept them.

Are you going to be able to take the Oregon state bar upon graduating?

I don't like Concord because they take multiple classes at once. I think it would be better to take one, or no more than two classes at a time. Concord doesn't have a video demo of the instructor teaching class like some of the other schools do. I also don't have the bachelors to get into Concord. I need like 7 more classes. So I might have to go to one of the other schools.

For sure make sure that you already passed a bar in another state before you petition, because if you petition and and they allow you to take their states bar and you fail, then that would be really embarrassing for you.

I'm at concord in 2L, the school has a great SBA - you need to signup, you will want to participate in the FYLSE review - even NOW.  VERY IMPORTANT for you to start memorizing your rule statements!

I think Jenni123 works for Concord in the admissions department. She gets a commission for every student she signs up. LOL.

I am waiting for my test result from Cal Bar for the FYLSE, if I passed (which I feel pretty good about).  I go to Concord.  I recommend HIGHLY. 

jennid1234, if you find out that you failed the FYLSE, then we are all expecting you to do a follow up post and tell everybody how much you hated Concord and you don't recommend them. I heard they don't have video learning, and the students listen to audio only. How many classes do you take at one time the first year?

General Board / QUESTION: How long is the J.D degree good for?

If somebody graduates from law an ABA accredited law school and is given a J.D, and they decide they don't want to take the state bar just yet, then how long can they wait to take the bar(any state)?

Let me rephrase my question. Can somebody take the bar a five or ten years later? Not everybody goes to law school to become lawyers, and some go for the J.D degree and knowledge, but later in life they might decide to take a state bar. Can they take it? Or is the time expired and they are forever barred from taking the bar? Is it an ABA rule? Is it a written rule anywhere?
