By other universities? You think they all plan to go to LLM/PhD programs or something??

And I speak of the federal courts that I have looked into. You speak of the common misconception that profs teach, but is proven wrong upon application.
VA and SSA don't even require you to have a GED, so those aren't the best examples either.

"You are mistaken on federal practice.  A number of federal district courts (not all) allow any bar member to join,"

I was uncertain on this, so I looked into this in response to a query in another thread. Every single D.C. I looked at in a brief sample required licensure in the state in which the D.C. was located, or, on occasion, a neighboring state. I did not find a single D.C. in my limited search would allow for "any bar member" to join. I highly recommend doing a thorough search prior to accepting this advice. Short version- I belive this to be wrong, unless you have a very generous definition of "a number."

I do agree that there are other federal bars, including the Supreme Court and the COAs that you can get admitted to by bootstrapping, say, a CalBar admittance- but you should also note that CalBar has really, really, really bad reciprocity.

I deal in facts.  Fact is you can motion into a number of federal district courts which are not in California.  Including some big ones in Illinois, Texas, and Michigan.  Is that viable for most online law grads, nope, but for a few who actually litigate, it can work.

I deal in facts too, the odds are against them. And most aren't smart enough to check the jurisdictions before enrolling, plus a bunch of other stuff I am sure.

That dear sir is a generalization not a fact leading me to believe that you must be one 'em.

Generalizations are generally true......ESPECIALLY when dealing with COURT LAWS...........did you even read the conversation before kneejerk responding?
I'm done with this.

Some of the stuff that I said SUPPORTED the schools, some were AGAINST it..........most were just reality.
Most are smart enough to weed that out. Some very obvious people are not, and I suspect they know why.

"not a fact leading me to believe that you must be one 'em."
And I honestly can't imagine a more backwards uneducated attempt at self defeating ad hominem.............your name proves you aren't a lawyer so just stop.
