Foretook - you are obviously ignorant that the Mormans are some of the biggest agribusinness operators in the country.

A national ID scares you but not the Patriot Act?

If an illegal immigrant did not have a national ID, that would pretty much resolve the issue, right now they can whip out a matricular card and borrow money on a mortgage and get welfare benfits becuase we have no real ID for the country.

So called defenders of freedom are usually defenders of corporate profits first and foremost.

If you haven't figured it out yet Mitt will say anything to get elected, what he will do is another matter.

Do you think they pass out waivers just for the asking like cotton candy at the state fair?  Why would anyone be entitled to a waiver from the rules in the first place which are put there to specifically keep them out of the bar?  That is not my experience, you need to comply with the rules twice over if you are a non ABA attorney. In fact, the only states that will consider a California DL degree lawyer for sure are: DC, Iowa, Wisconsin, New Mexico, and Maryland. DC I know for a fact. New Mexico is uncertain in practice. As for Iowa, Wisconsin, and Maryland, they look striaghtforward on paper but this is no guarantee.

Still be a mmeber of two of the largest bars in the US, California and DC, is pretty good for a degree that cost a fraction an ABA degree.

You may note that Taft is very conservative about promsing anything except a ticket to the state bar.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Legal Consultant Exam

What law school was that and why do you think the JD is no giood?

Legal Consultant as in Foreign Legal Consultant would apply to foreign licensed attorneys.

Legal consulting sounds to me like unlicensed practice of law.

However you can practice as an Advocate before the Veterans and Social Security Administration provided you follow their rules and California will issue you a permit as an Immigration Consultant provided you satsify their requirements.

An exam for JDs is called a bar exam what exam are you thinking of that requires only showing a JD?

Are you serious? Anywhere. This is America the land of innovation. If you present your case right, you will get a waiver and be able to sit for the bar. You are a US citizen and should be entitled to take the bar if you studied the law. Believe in yourself!

I agree but Bar Examiners are bound by their rules which exclude all manner of non ABA degrees specifically.

The real solution is a national ID or an internal passport. The Republicans would be the first to scream about that. A drivers license is a credential to operate a vehicle, it is not really meant to be ID but just evolved into one because there is no unifrom ID. The Feds could provide the new ID for everyone free of charge, no inconvenience to the poor because they could get theirs at the social services office. Creating 300 million IDs would create a lot of temporary jobs too.  This would also solve the illegal alien problem.

But republicans like Rommney and his corporate buddies don't want a real ID because then they could not hire illegal workers for their corporate farms etc.

But what was the school? Outside of Arizona doesn't really convey much information.

The school is in Texas? There does not appear to be any non ABA law school in Texas.

Here is a list of law schools:

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?
