If you pass the baby bar in California and then graduate, you'll be eligible to sit for the bar there. Though I doubt your employment prospects would be very good.

Based on everything I've read about the school, I wouldn't call it a paper mill. First, the school has a very low graduation rate, which, in my opinion, makes it anything but a paper mill. The curriculum is, more or less, the same as any other law school in the land. Though, you do have to remember you will only be eligible to sit for the bar in California, and, if you pass the bar there, you will be eligible to sit for the bar in Wisconsin, as well. All othere states will require at least 3 years of practicing in another state before you are eligible to sit somewhere else.

Also, you have to keep in mind that a lot of lawyering (<--- the damn spell checker is telling me this isn't a real word, but it sure sounds/reads like one) cannot to be taught online, so, you'll have to a very motivated, intelligent individual to be able to be courtroom-ready after you do pass the bar... and, if you are that motivated and intelligent, you'd probably be able to get into an ABA-accredited part-time program.

And, my final thoughts on the matter... if you live in the middle of nowhere, with no law schools around, and you want to practice a paperwork intensive/little courtroom type of law (bankruptcy, probate, for example), it may be an option that might work for you. But, even in that situation, you'd still have to move to CA to practice, and CA isn't exactly the cheapest place to live or start a business.

But, based on their graduation rate, I don't think it is fair to call them a diploma mill.

Concord came in second in a Moot Court Competition last year. They may be doing something right. --LinkRemoved--
