Online Law Schools / Re: Taft, ALU, Concord

I would recommend Taft, they have a good track record for an online school.   I understand they still offer the correspondence program option which is great for self learners who can memorize mass quantities of material. Concord on the other hand likely has the most elaborate online courses.  The odds are still bad either way unless the student is a paralegal or has some acquaintance with the legal system on a regular basis. I likely squeeked by because I worked in the juvenile court system and social services.

I have instructed in Masters in Diplomacy, Masters in Legal Studies, and Masters in Public Administration programs.

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.

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.
