OK - after using Google a bit, there is actually something in Washington State at least called a Limited Practice Officer:http://www.wsba.org/Licensing-and-Lawyer-Conduct/Admissions/Limited-Licenses-and-Special-Programs/Non-Lawyers-and-Students/Limited-Practice-Officershttp://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.display&group=ga&set=apr&ruleid=gaapr12In theory it looks more lucrative than being a paralegal.CrazyLawStudent however should have been able to find this by Googling instead of wasting time here for weeks.Still I am always glad to learn something new. But this looks like a fancy name for a real estate escrow officer since there does not appear to be any real educational requirement except perhaps a Bachelors degree and passing the exam.
That is the law clerk program which leads to being an attorney and is not the same as Limited Practice Officer. Limited Practice Officer is under thier Rule 12, it does not require a JD.
I think all you need is a BA (or less) and pass the exam since LPOs seem to function mainly as escrow officers.
