An employed paralegal earns more than an unemployed lawyer.

If you are going to practice in Alabama, sounds like a great plan.

They can't pass or qualify to take the bar but have some sort of JD - we've given them a ton of suggestions.  No need to beat a dead horse.

I think all you need is a BA (or less) and pass the exam since LPOs seem to function mainly as escrow officers.

Law clerk program is Rule 6.  Read statutes more carefully please.

Here is Rule 12 again, your read the wrong program, this is for non lawyers who want to be LPOs.

You obviously do not need a JD becuase this does not lead to being a lawyer.

The purpose of this rule is to authorize certain lay persons to
select, prepare and complete legal documents incident to the closing of real
estate and personal property transactions and to prescribe the conditions of
and limitations upon such activities.

That is the law clerk program which leads to being an attorney and is not the same as Limited Practice Officer.  Limited Practice Officer is under thier Rule 12, it does not require a JD.

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.
