Not sure where to direct you, but I heard that there are some online foreign law schools that are reasonably priced at under $4000.00 for an entire 4 year law degree. Every State bar within the united states accepts foreign law degrees and will allow you to sit any state bar. This includes online foreign law degrees. The problem with this, is that other countries have different laws, so it would be difficult to learn, or rather difficult to pass the American state bar since you are learning a different countries law. For example, other countries do not have the constitution and we do.

What online foreign schools?  Every state bar does not accept foreign law degrees, they accept only certain ones and only if you have qualified in that jurisdiction first as a lawyer.  Quit making stuff up.

An EJD is good for nothing, attorneys will laugh at you for wasting time and money on it and no one else has any idea what it is.

You can try a JD but a Masters might be better, lot's of unemployed attorneys out there trying to claim their JD is just as good as PhD and they are qualified to teach everything from political science to history.  The JD however doesn't qualify anyone to teach anything except maybe law.  Also I would not get an online MA, even the online schools don't like to hire online grads as they are concerned about their accreditation.

Concord's grads cannot sit for the Oregon bar until they have practiced 5 years.

Yeah, must be a troll (or a mental invalid)

If a school is truely approved as a lawschool by its state bar, then the state it can practice is THAT SAME STATE.

If just approved as a school but not as a lawschool, then NO WHERE. (refer to other anwers given to you on same question)

It's the Kentucky person again pretending be from Texas.  Let's get it straight, petitioning is when you have already passed the bar in one state and want to take it another.  But your chances are going to really low unless you have a damn good reason and are a resident of the state you are petitioning.

The Taft method has a track record and works for those who do not need their hand held and have a high tolerance for pain.  Do not expect As from Taft but your grad epoint is irrelevant, your goal is to pass the bar.

Concord has all the bells and whistles and is part of the Washington Post Corp. It is expensive but has all the extras, it also has a track record.

I'd say choose Concord unless you already work in the court system or have an outstanding memeory, in which case I'd choose Taft and save some money.

Most states allow you to "petition to take the bar exam" through their supreme court rules of that state, as long as you can prove that your legal education, whether online or in person, is equivelant to an ABA approved law school. Lots of people petition to take the bar exam. Some are allowed to take it and some are not.

Sure dude happens all the time. not!  Just oodles of non ABA grads lining up to petition a state Supreme Court, all six of them maybe, the rest would not know how to draft a peitition, I sure don't know off hand but I know the chances would be about nil of it being accepted.

Cart before the horse, the bar exams have not changed, so you want a school that teaches for the bar, all the rest is non essential.  No law school can do more than acquaint a student with actual practice.

Adjunct work usually does not pay so well, even with a relevant PhD.  Figure $1500 a class online or otherwise to start.

If you are willing to put in the time and have a mature viewpoint and don't turn away any legitimate business, you can easily gross well in excess of $100K your first year as a solo practiioner and net much of that if you keep your overhead down and have no employees.  Your background and maturity are in your favor and if you have definite business plan in mind while attending law school, you can start to already stockpile practice info in advance.  Figire you can shave overhead by getting into some sort of shared office scheme and do much of the work virtually.  Make the most of your free Lexis or WestLaw access as a student etc.  While your law school cohort is bemoaning the lack of jobs, you can be making money by doing what most law school grads think is beneath their dignity: collections, disability, child support, workers comp, misdameanor criminal defense, nickel and dime slip and fall cases etc.
