I agree with this. Plus, when push comes to shove, I'm all for giving folks a chance to do something, even if it's a longshot. It's a free country and people should know the risks, but there are some (maybe many) people who, if given a 1 in 10 shot at being an attorney, WANT to have that 1 in 10 shot. They don't want some bureaucratic process to turn it into a 0 in 10 shot.
As a matter of fact I did get a correspondence school JD, have passed two bars including California, am a member of three major bars and dozen minor ones, am a LLD candidate (student), and instruct online. You say you want to discuss cases but all you offer are unsupported conclusions and opinion. First thing you do with an outliar state court case like Ross is Sheperdize it to see if any other court has cited it for good or bad. Secondly, Ross as a state court case cannot be a binding precedent outside Massachusetts.
I agree, DETC is of no help with bars but does make a difference iyou want to use the JD for academic purposes.I checked with the New Mexico peititioner, their app. is still tied up with red tape. They are contemplating going to the NM Supreme Court.Taft alumni are members of multiple bars, Taft could do better to keep track.
just out of curiosity where do you teach? I ask since I think it's cool we have an actual Prof here.

Nope, I have a PhD in Political Science and a JD from Taft. I want to move over to a law faculty which I am working on a LLD.
