Problems with attending non ABA Law School
« on: May 10, 2008, 10:16:31 PM »
My friend wants to attend Mass School of Law in Andover MA, she is waitlisted at Roger Williams and CUNY.  Despite the obvious what is the problem with non ABA?  Can you still sit for the bar?

Depends on what state you're taking it in.  There are usually extra hoops for a non-ABA school; even if they let you take the bar, you'll have to probably take the "baby bar" or do other stuff.

I'd call the office of bar admissions wherever you want to practice and check with them. 

Additionally, I can't imagine the job market for grads is very good, especially if you want to practice in Boston or someplace like that.
