We are not eligible to sit for a bar exam in any state with a law degree from England, or any foreign country.  Attorneys from overseas have to take an LLM course designed to teach them American law.  Then, after the earn that degree, they can sit for a bar exam in the state in which they earned the LLM.  I looked at the University of London.  I saw a much higher price.  I will check it out again.  You might have to learn legal writing on your own.

America state bars will accept a foreign law degree. America does indeed welcome foreign LLB law degree's from England since the American judicial system is based on common law from England. We took the laws within British law books and made it American law when we broke away from them.

It's not about only online law schools. It's also about foreign online law schools. Some of these foreign law schools only charge $5,000.00 for a whole law degree that can be used in America and is the same equivalent as an ABA approved law school. Surely somebody must have a free copy they can email me.

Hi everyone, I will be starting @Taft law school in a few weeks , had previously attended Concord . Does anyone have any information on Taft and what to expect , your experiences at either school etc. I was wondering about the books for Taft as I will soon be needing them. Also and information on Sum & substance audio cd's you have tried Finz or other ?? Thanks

So the lesson to be learned here is, "the most expensive law school [Concord] is NOT the best law school."

If these online law schools maintained a high pass rate, then the ABA would consider accrediting them with the ABA designation.  Online law schools have the lowest pass ratio ever out of all the law schools in America.

The price of tuition is also a huge difference from online law school to brick and mortar law school. I've seen online law schools as low as $1,500.00 year vs. Brick and Mortar Whittier Law school which is priced at $35,000.00 a year.

How does this post fit in with this forum? This forum is a "distant education law school" forum. Where else do they have distant education law schools besides California? As far as I'm aware, Chicag doesn't have an distant education law schools. Do they? What about another state?

They wouldn't allow her to take the Georgia state bar because she went to a terrible law school. Northwestern California University School of Law treats students poorly. The admissions guy named "Nick" told me that we woud rather kill himself instead of going to law school to be a lawyer. Nick then went on to tell me that he is too busy to send me demo of their lectures. This is the only law school that doesn't have online demo's to show prospective students. He was rude. I tried to discuss Nicks negative conduct with the Dean of the school Michael Clancey. Clancey was just as negative and rude as Nick. They defended one another. I think Dean Michael Clancey and Nick of the Northwestern California University School of Law are gay lovers. I never seen two men stick up for each other like that. It was weird.

If she would have graduated from an online law school with a good reputatin, then they probably would have allowed her to take the Georgia bar.

I want to go to law school online.  In Georgia, our choices are few and far between.  I am 43 years old.  My undergrad GPA is 3.69.  My LSAT was 140... sad.  I am a mother of 2 and actually finished my Bachelor's degree online and took 6 classes towards my Masters in Law and Public Policy.  Both school were accredited, regular colleges.   I am not even really interested in being a trial attorney anyway.  I just love the law.

After all the research I did on online law schools, I decided to go with Taft.  You can actually get Federal Student Aid and have your current student loans deferred while attending.  That is a plus.  They have also been around a long time and after talking with them, I thought they were the best choice for me.

However, I got an email from them on Friday indicating that they have had a lot of applications for the Fall semester and they requested I write an essay on which part of the First Amendment is most important in our modern society.  No more than 5 pages.  They say this will allow them to determine who will succeed at Taft.  Do they think they are Harvard? 

Now... I cannot figure out if this is their way of not admitting me or if they are on the fence and want to see if I can write.  Since I have been in the legal profession 18 years and have taken 6 law classes already, I have written legal essays and briefs so I sent an essay I already wrote for another class.  It was about cases being tried in the media.  I received an A- on it.  It's a pretty good essay.  It is possible they have too many applicants for September and I assume if they did not want me, I would have already been rejected. 

My second choice of schools is California School of Law but the benefit of deferring current student loans is not available. 

 ;)

Sooooo, which school did you choose? It's a year later, and you should be almost done with your first year of one of the online law schools. Care to share with us?
