Ah, that makes much more sense. Don't know how I feel about the WI exception, however. Seems a little elitist 19th century good ol boy cluby to me.
Without discussing the merits of online law school, I have already decided that's what I will do. I am planning on sitting for the Wisconsin bar. I will get a significant raise at my current job if I have a law degree. So having a substandard degree is not a problem for me. The question is: Which online degree is the quickest and cheapest that Wisconsin will accept? Alternatively, is there another state I should be looking at? Thank you
Are you saying WI and VT have reciprocity will all states? I was not aware that WI didn't have a bar exam, that's surprising. I know of at least two states that have reciprocity with no one (DE and RI). I was under the impression that reciprocity is a two way street. Can reciprocity be one way? Are you guys sure about this?
In other words, don't expect to be a Wisconsin attorney unless you go to an ABA law school. Secondly, tyring to go online is harder, not easier than going to a traditional law school as in many will try and few will succeed.
The chances of passing the Cal bar with an online degree is about 8-1 against given the low pass rate (20%) and first year bar exam attrition. The online JD is four years instead of three. No one should even consider an online JD unless:1. They don't really care if they become a lawyer or not;2. They have no other alternatives.I might add, I am a big proponent of online JDs but the deck is stacked against ther student under the current regime.
