All in all, from what I've learned from active attorney's in my area, is that where you went to school is far less important than if you're good at what you do.
That's true, but there are thousands of attorneys who went to good schools who are good at what they do. We live in a world of tiebreakers because we have two attorneys for every attorney job.
Non ABA schools are a very good option considering you can practice law almost anywhere so long as you pass the bar in California and practice for a few years before applying to take the bar in another state.
Almost anywhere? Care to list the states that do this? (I don't mean to be snarky, but it's not close to almost anywhere)
The ABA is nice but is very over rated. I think people are going to see a shift as the cost v. benefit of attending an ABA school is not what it once was when you compare dollars and cents.
Yes, the ABA is overrated, but non aba schools need a few different things. They need to get state bars on board, they need higher quality students, and they need employers to get on board. Really, once employers get on board, students and state bars will follow suit.
