Online Law Schools / Re: Help me pick an online law school

Carrier [sic] options for most online law school students involve things like:

1.  Telephone salesperson after failing to pass the FYLSE.

2.  Insurance or WestLaw@ salesperson after failing to pass the Cal Bar.

3.  Solo practioner by default after passing the Cal Bar.

I agree with Roald, try a Calbar school with no FYLSE. but first I would also talk to admissions at Cooley candidly about the situation.  Why Cooley?  Because it supposedly has about lowest admission standards of any ABA accredited school.  Any ABA accredited degree is always bertter than non ABA and a Cooley degree will let you take an easy bar like Illinois as opposed to the hard one in California.

A law school with no  one qualified to practice law associated wiht it, is violating the law of rational thought.

One little fly in the ointment, you still need to get a practising certificate if you are US citizen. Not very likely a non EU citizen will land a training contract.  Additionally, the US LLM requires a lot of time and expense.  Much easier for a US citizen to get a 3 year ABA law degree, then practice 2 years and pass the QLTS?

With a  foreign degree and PC, I'd also recommend trying for the Illinois bar which has something like a 85% pass rate versus California's which is under 50%.

I agree - I went to an online California law school and then qualified as a solicitor via the QLTT based on my PQE  and passing three exams.  Unless one is a dual EU/US citizen, the training contract is not going to happen.

In the US, UofL would be only one with name recognition.

I might add, it's pretty standard in college too to have the professor use their own book.

Fleming's materials are well worth the price - likely the best study materials out there for online students.  I would not have passed the bar in 1992 without Fleming's help.

Ask the schools' admission departments and explain your situation, they are for profit schools and will be glad to help you enroll if at possible.

USDLA exists, anyone can join, it is a lobbying not accrediting organization:

Same with CAEL, so the organizations are not fake, its just they do not accredit.

It would be like claiming your AARP membership makes you a lawyer.
