Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Mid-Atlantic School of Law

No M*SL student will admitted to the California or DC Bars - the apocryphal stories by N##VUS and M#SL involve would be lawyers studying in maybe law offices - it is just a sad scam and the true believers will not admit reality.  Reality check - How come no one associated with those schools (including so called deans) is actually a member of a bar?

REALLY GOOD LEGAL LOGIC - m*sl is just same as good as one of the dawgon California schools 'cept you can't take the bar, can't become lawyer and the degree is completely unaccredited and the school is a sham and run from an offshore mail drop, did I mention the website looks like it was done in Wordpress by someone's 12 year brother?  You might as well just get a diploma mill JD and cut out the middleman.

A certain Mr. Obama was a law professor with little or no actual experience practicing law though I am sure his former students are pleased with the outcome as it makes a nice story.

104
Some law school professors get to be members of the bar w/out actually taking the bar depending on state law.

But to teach law why would one need to pass a bar? Some law professors have minimal actual practice experience.  First Year legal writing is almost always taught by a third year student at many schools.

The law library requirement is a ridiculous requirement in the 21st Century - books are on the way out in favor of searchable hyperlinked e-texts at many universities. Law firms are ditching their expensive law libraries as a waste of space and money. An new associate would likely be upbraided for wasting valuable time at a law library instead of pulling the material from Lexis or West Law. Most law professors have the same JD as everyone else, in the US a JD is terminal professional degree.  Yes you can get a SJD or a foreign LLD but most law professors don't have those degrees.  The best law professors also practice law, but some have not even passed a bar.

How can Concord improve its pass rate if it is getting subpar students?  Average and above students are usually not going to waste their time with an unaccredited law school.  Give Kaplan/Concord provisional ABA status and you will see the pass rate improve.

107
Kaplan University and Concord unlike every other player in the online law school business - has the ability to take on the ABA.

108
Concord is Kaplan which is Washington Post Corp:

They are politically connected and they can do it.

Passaroa Blackstone is not a law school, its legal faculty consists of one guy with apparentkly a legitimate JD but no law license.

Why don't you look into being a McKenzie friend?
