Lawyers Who Skip Law School
An undergraduate degree.This is hardly taking the easy way to a law license. I think that there is something about the law school experience that makes the process much easier. The pass rate for law readers mentioned in the article illustrates that. Not only do you have professors who are experts in their fields instructing you, you have many other students to use as resources. A lot of law school is students helping students. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and we often rely on each other to tutor each other.
Acceptance by the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners.
Access to a practicing attorney willing to teach the same subjects offered in law school.
Submit course curricula and take exams on each subject.
Access to a law library.
Complete program in three years.
Pass state bar exam.
As tempting as it would be to avoid paying for law school, I think that I am better off here than in a law reader program.
