Most ABA law schools do not even consider online law school work as transfer material.

Your statement is false. A law student can transfer up to 12 credits from a non ABA law school, including distance education and/or expirential learning credits.

They dont have a phone number with a live person on the end. It's a voice mail.

Actually, they could end up being an "overqualified paralegal" with a bunch of debt they can't pay!  As badly as I hate to use saying like this, in legal education the motto of "plan your work, work your plan" really makes sense.  Know where you want to end up before you begin, then pick the best road to get there.

It's not a bunch of debt. London external law school's LLB program is less than $2,000. a year for the 3 year program. London and other Countries are known for giving people an education at a reduced fee. You can get a whole law degree or any degree in other countries for less than $5000.00. The same exact degree that cost over $150,000. in America. America accepts foreign degrees no matter what kind of degree it is; Economics, Law, Education, Politics, Psychology, Management, Marketing, Business, etc...

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.

Does anybody have a .PDF copy of "the law school bible" they can email me for free. I don't feel like paying for it.

Thank you.

Try Whittier law school in California. They have a a high pass rate lately.

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."

General Board / Case law books on audio?

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.
