The LaVerne Mystery

Postby BeautifulSW » Tue Oct 25, 2011 11:38 am

People who follow such things will already be aware that the University of LaVerne College of Law lost its provisional ABA approval last June. The California Board of Bar Examiners swiftly (and appropriately) granted LaVerne its own CBE accreditation which allows LaVerne graduates to take the California Bar and maybe sit in a couple of other states as well. (Maybe two dozen states after five years of practice experience.)

The mystery is that LaVerne still says it's charging the same $120,000 sticker price for tuition as it has for the last several years. How is this possible? Who could possibly be willing to pay double the tuition of any other CBE accredited school? Does anybody here know?

You might want to hold on to something before you read the next sentence.

Most people are fucking morons.

Maybe their tuition is inflated so that they can award almost every applicant a half-tuition scholarship.

The fact that anyone's willing to pay a dime for an unaccredited law school shows that people are morons.

Noooo....I don't necessarily agree that no one should ever "pay a dime" for a non-ABA J.D. program. You can earn a law license awfully cheaply in California if you are not interested in or likely to obtain an associate position in a large law firm or with the feds. Middle-aged career changers might do well to avoid spending a hundred thousand on tuition alone if all they want to do is routine felony defense or child custody. Of course, such students had better be permanent California residents, too. Keep in mind that there are no cheap ABA law schools in the state anymore.

But as to the "morons" comment, yes, it's true but even so, the depth of stupidity still sometimes amazes me.

Or maybe they ARE giving everyone a 50% tuition scholarship. Who knows? But what I can't fathom is why anyone would apply in the first place?
