It appears that the US Department of Education is targeting for-profit schools, threatening to halt federal aid if students default on student loans or do not earn enough after graduation to be able to repay them. 

Hopefully, should these rules be implemented, for-profit schools will get their acts together and start to put together quality programs.

Online Law Schools / Online JD for legal writing?
« on: July 12, 2009, 07:01:47 PM »
I'm considering applying to an online JD programme... My main goal isn't- at this stage, at least- to practice law but rather to expand my skill set to include legal writing. My question is this: Would doing a non-ABA approved, online degree hinder me in the legal writing field?  I realise that there's a great degree of stigma attached to doing an online law degree and was wondering if that would extend to using it as a professional degree?  I am studying for the LSAT and do have the UGPA to get into a lower tier ABA school, but would ideally like to avoid putting myself further in debt with student loans (I have a grad. degree that I have yet to pay for...).

Any thoughts, suggestions?
