I'd love to go to an online law school. It'd be just like playing an MMO.

You would make more money gold farming. I don't know if they still do that...

I looked into the California School of Law, and while I admit that their instruction method "appears" to be ahead of other online institutions, they have absolutely 0, 0, 0, 0 accreditation for their JD. Again, Concord still appears to lead the pack, but I don't know if that means much considering I've sent emails requesting statistical data that is not on the CalBar website and have yet to even receive an acknowledgement email.

If there were an online JD program at Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, or UPenn, that would be great. Whichever T10 school decides to throw in an online JD program and allow students the same employment and law review opportunities and make it so that employers do not see which students are in the online program and would therefore not discriminate against them, then they will make BANK. Mark my words. Tons of students would enroll and keep their jobs and remain debt free after graduation. Because at the end of the day, a JD is a JD. There are so many ways to slice a cookie. It's from a reputable school and is the degree you need to pass the bar exam in that state. Period. Case closed. If there was an online JD program available now in 2012 at a T10 with good job prospects, I would go and keep working. Hands down. But unfortunately there is not.

Googled it and surprisingly enough 7 on-line law schools are ranked ― all located in CA. There is also one in Vermont claiming to have ABA accreditation for the school’s environmental law program. Is anyone here signed up for one of these schools (or even thinking about it)?

Ranked according to who? None of these are ABA accredited as far as I know, which makes them unranked and not worth attending in my book (except perhaps with no tuition and a stipend for the time expenditure). In other words, these are ranked at the very bottom of the bottom to the extent they are ranked.

You need scuba gear to go this low in the rankings and survive.

Incredible that 1,700 people are attending LS online. I do not "get it."

at least they're barely paying for a useless degree, which is more than can be said about around 50% of "real" law school grads
