In this week’s episode of the legal affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we look at online law schools. For reasons ranging from finances to lifestyle, increasing numbers of lawyers-to-be are opting to get their legal education online. In addition, at least one online law school now also offers an LLM program for lawyers who want to advance their education.
To discuss these topics, we welcome two guests:
- Ellen Murphy, program director for Concord Law School’s LLM program in small business practice and a professor for the law school’s course in cross-profession ethics.
- Ross E. Mitchell, the graduate of Concord Law School who made history in 2008 when he became the first graduate of an online, unaccredited law school to win permission to take the bar exam in a state outside California and who went on to pass the Massachusetts bar and be sworn in as a lawyer there.
