I guess all those Europeans with national IDs must have the wrong idea.

Yes immigration consultants, California requires them to have a sort of registration and bonding.

No JD required for that - it is essentially filling out forms.

If you wait 5 years, Maryland will let you take the bar without a waiver.  DC will let you motion in after 5 years as well.  But somehow I think they have non ABA schools that are not DL in mind with that waiver. But no harm trying once you pass the bar.

One call also perform lawyer like functions as a Social Security Advocate and Veterans Advocate but that will not make one a lawyer.

In all fairness what you may be thinking of is a Tax Court Practioner which is not an attorney even if they have a so called JD:

To be a Patent Attorney one has to pass the Patent Bar.

To be admitted to Tax Court one has to be an attorney in good standing already.

Aside from being a patent attorney which is harder than becoming a regular attorney - what separate license requirements are you referring to that do not already involve being a member of a bar in good standing first? I'd be interested in knowing what I missed out on.

It is a shame that both evangelicals and the mainstream media want to make Romney's religion an issue.  You would think that in this day and age that would be irrelevent.

But it is an issue - look at all the crap the GOP shills threw at Obama about his Church?

Not unless you pass the bar first.

I think Taft's own materials support this:

Taft is non ABA, it is not accredited, it is registered with the state bar, it is a correspondence school.  Most states specifically in their rules exclude non ABA and correspondence schools.  They do so because they do not want you to be a member of their bar. Short of some extraordinary circumstances they are not going to grant a waiver and they are most assuredly not going to grant a waiver for a non resident.

Of course something is wrong - it is called the ABA.

The department of Education stamp is irrelevant, only California and ABA accreditation matter and Taft does not have either not does taft ever represent that it does.

Once you pass FYBE, you can worry about these matters, until then my advice is concentrate on the FYBE,.

Anyone who can't figure out their school's status is not going to pass the bar either way. Non ABA is trolling.
