Blackboard, WebCT, Angel, Pearson Ecollege, etc. they are all good platforms at this point.  Moodle on the other hand is a freebie system not in their league, my kid's grade school uses it.

Yes, the state that approved the school is where you take the exam usually as in the case of California, Alabama, or Massachusetts.

Or are you asking about kentucky again?

OK, when you pass the bar, you go sue them, end of story.

Yes, that state is called California, all the DL schools are not state approved, they are registered with the state.

Things change as circumstances change, within 20 years all law schools will be fully or partially online to some degree for example.

There will be no need for those precious and expensive paper law libraries as everything will be beamed to your IPAD or tablet and students will have grown up not reading books but cross referencing Kindles.

The law professors will need to adapt or find another job or sip some hemlock like Socrates.

What makes you think they bank in the RMI?  Not likely, the corp. is just supposedly based there. The owners would likely default, pop up somewhere else, and you would have a worthless judgment for your efforts.

Are you under the illusion that being incorporated and having a website makes one a legitimate business?

Since polticians tend to be lawyers don't except anything to pass that would lower legal fees and lower their standard of living. Toss in that all judges are lawyers(obviously) and see the result when taken to court if law did pass.

Quite true but it is a sensible opinion and if it is being aired in the WSJ, it may have some support from the businness sector which is sick and tired of getting overcharged by big law firms. The ABA could be counted on to fight such a horrendous development tooth and nail.

I absolutely oppose any apprenticeship requirement.  When that is implemented, only children of lawyers will be able to become lawyers.

Seems to work in England. I suspect much of the apprecticeship could be done with the government which is after all the largest employer of attorneys and not individuals who hire their children who would be at best 1%-5% of the total. It would be a boon to corporations and law firms who could get talent for a minimal wage and possibly retain the ones who work out well in their training program.
