Any education is the product of what one puts into it.  DL learing is not for everyone. It is mostly for the self starters who do not need a push every once in awhile. I was educated in one of the top residencies in the nation and knew of great students and poor ones who came from this program.  There is no magic formula in learning the law.  Just hard work and study.  You get back what you put into it.  JMHO.  Later, Prolodoc

Please expand on the virtual office concept.  That is new to me.  Can you actually use that to count toward the 5 years needed to apply in other states>  Thanks, Prolodoc

Can a lawyer who is licensed in say, California, practice in the federal court system of ANY state without being a member of that states bar?  Later, Prolodoc

Well, I had to cover volumes of information for my previous life ( anesthesia ) and that has helped some, but this type of studying is really very different.  With medicine, you apply rules, however they are not open for as much interpretation LOL.  Thanks for the replies.  Later, Prolodoc

I spend around 2 to 3 hours per evening outlining, briefing and just study in general.  Is this about normal?  Later, Prolodoc

Hear Hear!  I really think that part of the problem is that everyone assumes that you will need to be offered a job out of law school.  I have no intention of looking for a " job ".  I have been self employed for over 30 years ( medicine ), and have every intention of being self employed in the law profession.  I am enrolled in Concord and have been very impressed with the caliber of education afforded there.

My sister graduated from Berkley at the top of her class, has written law textbooks, and many other articles and she feels that the education at Concord is excellent.  Now, who would you chose to listen to?  Moot Point.  Well, I am proud to be a law student of any kind.  And I would GLADLY compare Bar scores with anyone who wishes to when the time comes. 

But, some need the structure of a brick and mortar school, and if I could abandon my patients, I would go that route in a heartbeat, but I cant.  So, it seems that to be in a DL program you need to at least be a self starter, a little more mature, and not expect the road to be easy.

Thank for listening!

Is this based on current data?  Are you currently in law school, and where, if I might ask?  Later and thanks, Prolodoc

What is your " opinion " based on?  Are all distance schools like this in your " opinion "?  Later, Prolodoc
