law school at a distance

Can distance learning and law mix? Would you take a chance attending an online law school when the American Bar Association refuses to accredit the school? How will law firms react when a student from a virtual school applies for a position as an associate?

The South Florida Business Journal's article Virtual law school challenges norm reports that a third of Concord Law School's first graduating class will be taking the California bar exam this February. The school is based in Boca Raton, but its students and professors live all over the country. Their biggest hurdle appears to be getting American Bar Association accreditation, but it will be interesting to see how many of their students pass the California bar. The school presently has 1,100 students.
