I understand the limitations of a DL school. In my situation, I have been negotiating contracts for several years and work in an environment where everyone that performs my job is an attorney, making me the only one who isn't. Now, you could spin this is as a good thing, but it is my opinion, my credibility with my peers is low since people view me as a "non-attorney who doesn't know the law." I am looking to attend a DL to gain that education. I am not interested in practicing law and beening licensed in CA would not affect my job status or abilities. Also, I live in KY and there is only three brick and mortar schools. Only one is close and doesn't have a part-time or evening program. So for me, its about logistics.
