An online law school graduate can take the bar in most states if they pass any other bar such as the California bar and practice for a certain amount of years. You don't have to be a graduate from an accredited law school. Each state is different. Some states require you to practice for only 3 years, others require 5 years, etc... See the National bar counsel's website for each states requirement.

What if they let her take it, and she failed?  :(
That would be embarrassing.

So can she appeal it to the U.S. Supreme Court?

If one of these online law school grads ever take it to the Supreme Court and win, then ALL the bars in every state would have to allow online grads to sit for the bar in any state.
I wonder how many other online grads petitioned their decisions to their stat bar and won/ lost.

The California bar web site makes public each and every law schools pass ratio with how many students passed. Online schools have the worse pass ratio. Yale is number one with a 94% pass ratio. Bringham Young University has a high pass ratio in the 90's. Check it out for yourself. Scroll to the bottom to see the statistics by date.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Concord (or another school)

Concord doesn't have a very good pass ratio at all. In fact, according to the California State bar public statistics page, none of the online law schools have a good pass ratio. For Concord online law school, the California October 2009 bar exam, out of 207 Concord students that took the exam, only 37 passed. Ummm, that's not very good. Take a look for yourself.

Distance Education Law Schools / University of London law degree?

Any Ameicans on here receive a bachelors of Law from the University of London and allowed any of the state bars in America? I checked it out and their online law degree is only 1,500.00 a year. Sounds too good to be real. However, I checked out their curruculim and there is no "legal writing" class. How are we suppose to learn how to write like an attorney if they don't make us take legal writing? Am I overlooking something here? Also, I'm concerned that their laws are different than American laws, which could possibly cause a problem with passing the state bars. Anybody in the same boat?

Non-Traditional Students / Re: low LSAT score

Heres a hint for you  ;) ABA Law schools will let you in with a low 120 LSAT score if they didn't fill up all their seats and they have room. They would rather have your $150,000.00 for that one seat, then let it go empty. You have to keep bothering them even after you get your denial letter, to let them know you're still interested in attending. You always have the right to appeal their decision. Even if the school policy is not to allow anybody in below a 150 LSAT, they don't go by that. They just had to put that there so they don't look desperate.

I have a friend who attended a T3 law school with a low LSAT in the 120's. He also graduated at the top of his class. 

I have another friend who had a 172 LSAT score and tried 4 years in a row to get into a T3 law school in the town he lived in. He wasn't willing to move, so he had to attend that one school because he had a family. The school refused to allow him in.
