Bottom line, they still have to pass the California Bar before they can attempt to "change" anything.

No question, Cooley is the better option if you are a marginal student since you can bar exam shop.  There is a big difference between a 45% pass rate and a 90% pass rate on a bar.

Yes, many will try and few will succeed.

If you do a Google search, you can know too.

Becoming an English solicitor via distance learning may be a better option for some. Certainly the LLB is more prestigious than a California distance learning degree:

Licensed attorneys take an abbreviated version of the Cal bar and routinely do worse than first time takers. My theory is that increased alcohol and drug consumption is a factor in the lower than expected pass rate:

The pass rate for the 396 lawyers who took the attorneys’ exam was 34.6 percent, a decline from last year’s 41.6 percent pass rate. Of those who took the attorneys’ exam, 26 were disciplined lawyers who took the test as a condition of reinstatement. Four passed. The attorneys’ examination is open to lawyers who have been admitted to the active practice of law in good standing for at least four years in another United States jurisdiction.

The non ABA grads are in an inferior position per se because they cannot forum shop for an easier bar to take.
