Your a jackass lawyerintraining. Wait until you step inside a law school before you start running your mouth. All this pyscho babble coming from you is insanely idiotic.
It seems like if you follow the broad language of §1 of the Sherman Act you could argue that the ABA engages in a conspiracy in restraint of trade.
there isn't even a shred of a case, here.
1. The ABA just sets standards. Schools are free to comply with them and apply for accreditation or not.
2. States decide whether an ABA education is required or not. Several states have decided they have too few lawyers and/or they need lawyers who don't meet the standards of nearly everybody else in the country. It's not up to the ABA whether you can practice law or not: it's up to the state.
You're free to sue the state if you want. After all, why should there be standards? I think I'd make a darned fine osteopathic surgeon, and the state shouldn't be able to stop me just because I didn't get some fancy, overpriced MD or DO degree and do some ridiculous residency.
In fact, I should open up my own medical school that caters to people who want to be doctors, but who don't want to sit in classes, learn from books, get good test scores, etc. We'll just let them take classes on the internet and start cutting people open.
Got into another, much better school. Thank God. Why the uncomfortable digression? Too many digressions here already. I am confused as to why you would digress by alienating me. Never mind, its okay, I don't really care. Thanks for checking up on me.
All I meant was his career past, unless he was a legal secretary or something in the Marines, is irrelevant to law school. Will an admissions board look upon it differently than any other job, say a fire fighter or police officer? You may think it is cool, but has no bearing on the law, unless like I said he worked in military law while he was in the military.
I'm not trying to put anyone down, just looking at the facts. Because you want it to be a relevant factor is not enough to make it a relevant factor. OP, by all means try, but don't think because you were in the military you have a leg up in law school. That is a logical fallacy. With your numbers you don't need soft factors like that anyways. 170 on the LSAT is enough alone to get you into a decent school. Good luck.
