Distance Education Law Schools / Limited Practice Officer
« on: March 06, 2012, 09:46:40 PM »
OK - after using Google a bit, there is actually something in Washington State at least called a Limited Practice Officer:

http://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.display&group=ga&set=apr&ruleid=gaapr12

In theory it looks more lucrative than being a paralegal.

CrazyLawStudent however should have been able to find this by Googling instead of wasting time here for weeks.

Still I am always glad to learn something new.  But this looks like a fancy name for a real estate escrow officer since there does not appear to be any real educational requirement except perhaps a Bachelors degree and passing the exam.

If you don't want to practice law then you are in the wrong place. ???

You really need to take the bar and pass it.  Many lawyers never go to court so whether you want to go to court or not is irrelevant.

A Masters in Legal Studies is simply another type of paralegal degree which will just put you further in debt.

But some paralegals are well paid, work as a paralegal and study for the bar instead of looking for short cuts that simply do not exist.

If you don't like the above, try for a federal government job in procurement.

If you want an actual answer how about explaining your circumstances and giving some background?

What do you mean by "to work in Counsel?"

Oh Canada! / Canadian Legal Advisor CLA
« on: March 01, 2012, 07:18:55 PM »
Can anyone clarify what exactly a CLA with a non Canadian law degree and license can do, it seems they can advise on matters of public international law but the requirements and parameters seem to vary by province.  This would seem to be different from a Foreign Legal Consultant?

I quite agree, becoming a solicitor or barrister is a better and more straight forward process with reciprocity elsewhere in the Commonwealth and EU.  However, one will likely need a LLM to qualify to take the New York Bar and some PQE.  If one's goal is the New York Bar, it is a round about way to do it.

The other rather delicate problem is one of a work permit for a non EU citizen.  If there is a work around for that I'd like to hear it.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Online Law School for Wisconsin Bar

Concord's law school is not accredited as far as I can tell.  All the online schools come under a single registration scheme by California.

But without ABA accrditation, it does not really matter what they do.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: JD or E/JD to teach as college professor
« on: February 23, 2012, 11:02:19 PM »
If you want to teach criminal justice get a Masters in CJ. However since they pass those out like candy on Halloween, you may need a PhD to get a full time job.  And if you want to work at an actual (versus online) university or college, don't expect them to respect an online degree even if it is accredited. There is a big difference in an employer's mind between students who get a degree posting online and writing papers versus showing up for lectures and taking exams.

Your best shot might be to look into doing continuing education and training for the feds.
