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.

Online Law Schools / Limited Practice Officer

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.

If you want an actual answer how about explaining your circumstances and giving some background?

What do you mean by "to work in Counsel?"

Canadian Law Students / Canadian Legal Advisor CLA
« on: March 01, 2012, 05:18:55 PM »
Can anyone clarify what exactly a CLA with a non Canadian law degree and license can do, it seems they can advise on matters of public international law but the requirements and parameters seem to vary by province.  This would seem to be different from a Foreign Legal Consultant?
