I definitely think that more online classes should be offered for 2Ls/3Ls. Not the core stuff, but classes like Juvenile Law, or Death Penalty, or Water Law, etc.

At least at my school, those electives were usually taught by adjuncts, were small, and didn't rely so heavily on Socratic method. I think a class like that could easily be done online.

I know the ABA currently allows around 15 credits (or so) that way right now as is.

You're confusing what you want to happen with what's actually going to happen.

you can change it FYI

Mixed feelings.

On the one hand, I think why not. The world is changing, technology is improving, why not allow it?

On the other hand, I've taken a couple of online classes (from a totally reputable source), and to me the quality of experience suffered. It's difficult to replicate the experience of being in a classroom, and especially the experience of law school classes. Having to stand up in front of a room full people, making arguments on the fly, learning to control your nerves...these are all important lessons that can't really be experienced online.

Does that mean that online is automatically bad? No, but I think we have to accept that it's different and (at least in some ways) lacking.

Your Honor Society idea is interesting, although I'm not sure if the market exists. The target audience for online, I think, are the 130 LSAT crowd you mentioned and working adults. Anyone with a 170 is likely to want a traditional, prestigious law degree.

I'm not saying 170 lsat folks would jump boat to a new school, but offer (in theory) it as a program where they are at. The way that many have weekends and evening programs already, but online.

To be fair 170 people go to places like Cooley to get full ride scholarships as is.

I used to think not, but really, whats the difference? Just require a full year of internship for supervision before practicing IMHO. Heck, that would likely make them BETTER lawyers than many others.

I suspect the attrition rate might be hell if they let in the same 130 LSAT scores as CA, but if they required a 170 LSAT or transferring into online after a year at ABA with a 3.75 or higher GPA........make it an HONOR SOCIETY thing (vs the other extreme that it is now in CA) And the attrition would be almost 0% with an almost 100% bar pass rate.

Thoughts?

Hi,
In Australia, most Law degrees are undergraduate double degrees where students study Law and another subject.  There are many options such as Law & Psychology, Law & Accounting, Law & Marketing, Law and Engineering, Law and Medical Science, Law & Biology, Law & Chemistry, Law & Arts, Law & Social Science  etc.  Normally course is 5 to 6 years long and students complete the non-Law degree first followed by the Law degree component.  But, students start some law subjects from the first year.

Few examples are below:

  http://www.westernsydney.edu.au/future/future_students_home/ug/law

My question is, what would be the best double degree other than commerce/Accounting?  I am more in interested about the option that would give me more job opportunities.

I am applying for universities next month and any reply is very helpful for me.
 
If you want to be a lawyer/CPA, or do tax law......it would be smarter than an LLM in the same stuff IMHO

I'm a prospective student wondering what was your story of becoming a lawyer? What did you do in undergraduate studies and at the time during law school?
I believe that the saying goes "show me yours and I'll show you mine"
-you go first kid.
