Washington Post is the parent company of Concord and Kaplan and does a very good job at PR that much is clear. However, it is unrealistic to think that online grads are going to be able to compete in the job market. They are limited to a California license which would disqualify them from most if not all big law jobs. Most federal and state government job descriptions require an ABA degree. As for Butte County, LOL, if you are willing to go to Oroville or Del Norte or Modoc counties anything is possible. Del Norte let me do Pelican Bay PD cases within a few months of passing the bar with a Taft degree but that was the good old days. However, the current DA of Del Norte is a former meth addict, has been suspended from the bar in the past and is facing disbarment proceedings, so anything is possible there. The previous DA is also facing drug chargeshttp://www.courthousenews.com/2012/07/18/48476.htmhttp://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_20888756/trial-dates-set-state-bar-case-against-delThe point is that an online law degree can work but it is not a good way to get a job hire in law.
Concord is one of the best online schools but even all the honors in the world there will produce an attorney who is at a handicap in the job market.
Are online grads better, I like to think so, but in reality they are just different and employers don't like non conformists. A Uriah Heep with an ABA degree from a tirr one or two school will get the job not the online grad.
