    CA allows online law school with no site visit

    Advertisements



    I am a bit incredulous that CA allows "online law schools" such as Taft Law School - Online Law School, Online Law Degree, Juris Doctor Degree

    Does anyone else find this to be, well, extremely odd? As long as you pass they bar they allow you to practice in CA as a lawyer (but not in the rest of the country). However you can pass all the USMLE steps, but not be allowed to practice in CA all depending on where you did your basic sciences.

    Color me contradiction confused!

    Not odd at all. You just can't compare the two, medicine and law. A social science versus a 'hard" science. There are many jurist that are against this type of academic approach in law, reason why the ABA does not approve or accredit any long distance law school. In the early days of this nation the only requirement for you to practice law was to know the law, and you just knew it by reading it, best example...Abraham Lincoln. Can you do the same in medicine?

    Thats true, you can't compare law and medicine. The argument against California is its inconsistency with which they regulate medical schools not really with the comparison to law school regulation.Although that is kinda sad that i can sit in a room for a few months and pass my boards and get a law degree.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    Perhaps if ten people who got their online mail order law degrees would start suing the Cali Medical Board for failure to recognize their legitimate med school degrees then it might send a message. Dunno. But it'd sure be funny.

    I think it goes without saying there's no comparison. But it does highlight poor judgment and lack of credibility. It hate to have one of those clowns representing me in case with serious jail time on the line. I'm sure they're dirt cheap though! I kid, I kid.

    Cali

    Yes, Cali does not make any sense at all.....
    read my past post on Cali et al.

    No idea who is making the rules, but, I wouldn't mind reviewing their psych records

    California actually doesn't require law school attendance AT ALL. It's called "law office study." There was a thread a while back about it (or maybe it was SDN; I don't remember).

    If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything!

    such a bad comparison

    can law and medicine really be compared like that?

    Perhaps not, but what we can compare is one state with two licensing bodies for professional positions that use wildly contradictory criteria.
