What other state bar did you pass? Are you licensed in that state? Is your LLD program online as well?Forgive me, but you two look like your are misunderstanding each other. Neither one comes of as hostile to me and I sense an unnecessary escalation. I didn't think anyone has been licensed from an online school outside of Cali, either. I knew it was theoretically possible, but not that it had been done. Its a huge boot for the legitimacy of online schools, huge.
Here is another DL law school grad who practices outside California:James Rice - graduated Taft Law School in Feb 2001, http://www.taftu.edu/tls/honoredgrads.htm -- admitted to the California Bar in June 2001, http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/Member/Detail/213670 -- and admitted to the Idaho Bar in April 2002, http://isb.idaho.gov/licensing/attorney_roster_ind.cfm?IDANumber=6511. Had an email chat with him recently to get is perspective. Said he petitioned the State for a waiver to take the bar; they granted it without problem.So yes, people, it can be done. And I suspect it has been done more often than most of us know.
I read this case a little while back. Ross Mitchell passed the MA bar exam and is working in MA. I think that most states will allow someone with an online law school degree to sit for their exam on a case by case basis. I think that getting published on legal analytical topics is one of the best ways out there that shows them what you can do. Even ABA law school grads submit a sample of their writing to government agencies and some of the top law firms. It will not be easy. But, it is not impossible to get the green light to sit for a bar exam after earning a law degree online.
