(I really think that, considering all of the mudslinging, someone should switch the discussion to politics.)
I think all of the anti-DL law school posters need to grow up and get a life. First of all, the existing DL law schools are not against the law. There is no moral or ethical code against DL law schools, but only some people's refusal to consider something that is against what has been ingrained into them.
California is not the only place with DL law schools; Great Britain and some other countries also have some popular DL law school programs, although different than the U.S. JD programs.
For that matter, what difference does it make if some people want to obtain a JD online? Are the brick and mortar law school students getting brownie points for recruiting students to their schools? No, I think not. I would say that it sounds more like a plug by law school admissions to get students into their 'better' schools.
Now, I must get busy. Excuse me. I am studying an online course.
