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.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Petitioning a State

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?

Very few people pass the Calfornia baby bar that attended online law school. Some do not have any passing students. Every student failed. The California pass statistics are online here at this link,

Yale has the highest pass ratio for law schools. Almost every one of their students passed that took the Californa bar.

Distance Education Law Schools / Help me pick an online law school
« on: July 05, 2012, 09:50:48 AM »
I'm thinking of attending online law school and I don't know what one to pick. I've interviewed most of all of them, and they each have their good and bad. Money is not an issue as I am willing to pay the extra money for the better education. ALU and Northwestern both teach one class at a time. Concord teaches four classes at at a time. I think one class at a time is better. Some of them also have online video learning that we can watch the instructor teach a live class, although I don't know what schools do this.

Can I get anybody's input that has attended these online colleges or others ones? I realize everybody has different learning styles amd works for you might not work for me, but I would like input anyways.

Help me decide. Thanks.

It is the education I want... not the career. 


Seriously??  Who in their right mind would torture themselves just to add another degree to resume?  seems odd.

She wants the knowlege and not the career. A legal education is useful knowlege whether somebody is going to be a practicing attorney or not. A legal education can help a person get through tough times in life and save a lot of money in attorney fees.

Not sure where to direct you, but I heard that there are some online foreign law schools that are reasonably priced at under $4000.00 for an entire 4 year law degree. Every State bar within the united states accepts foreign law degrees and will allow you to sit any state bar. This includes online foreign law degrees. The problem with this, is that other countries have different laws, so it would be difficult to learn, or rather difficult to pass the American state bar since you are learning a different countries law. For example, other countries do not have the constitution and we do.
