At what point did I say I anticipated having to interview? You all may be correct with regards to a "traditional" path, but that's most assuredly not the path I've chosen. Were I to do so, I would move my family, or commute the 250 miles RT to my local ABA school. I will not be interviewing. I will not be working as an associate, praying to make partner. I have a partnership waiting for me with a close friend's firm. Why would they offer me, a lowly "DL" grad, a partnership? Because I bring 20 years of hard-core business experience to the table, which all you lofty T1 grads will spend the next two decades developing for yourself. Because I have run successful and unsuccessful businesses. I have had to meet payroll. I have hired and fired. I have litigated and been litigated against. I have written and signed more contracts than most of you will ever write, and know what works and what doesn't. My POS "DL" degree, and California license, will only serve to ratify the knowledge and skills which I already possess. For a bunch of aspiring attorneys, this group, in general, does a very poor job of reading the facts as I lay them out, without interjecting your own bias into the argument. See you in court.
...All of your posts are the same, confrontational and self indulging. Also, calling me a child is quite stupid. You are a few years older than I am, but you hardly act it. I am quite sure I have seen much more of this world then you could ever dream of...
To go DL and pass the CA bar, you must be good.Kathleen Sullivan, the editor of my con law book and former dean of Stanford Law, failed the CA bar.
Lawafter40, I agree with you on many of your points. Success is not measured on where you went to school, but on the results you can deliver in the real world. I would never look down on anyone because of where they went to school. If DL fits their needs, then I think it's a great option. Also, a fancy law school and strong study habits does not guarantee you will pass the bar exam. We had 3 associates who graduated in the top 20% of their Ivy League class fail the CA bar this year. Penn, GTown, Harvard. Go figure.
There are soo many new lawyers for firms to choose from, why on Earth would a firm choose a non-aba graduate. Granted most never pass the bar so there are few to chose from but still why would anyone hire a non-aba student. (Insert here how the aba is bad yet your law school keeps trying to get approved).If you pass the bar, there will be plenty of job available. I know that class rank, school, etc matter if you want to go corporate, but most people that go DL have different goals...
90% of new business's fail so I guess if you do the math
