    As you can read from prior posts, many students plan to use
    the degree for purposes other than practicing law. Prior posts
    also indicate many of these individuals are outside of

    In the big picture, the difference in cost is small. Let's
    assume that you pay $40,000 at Concord vs. say $12,000 at
    another school. The difference is $28,000. If your billing
    rate as an attorney is $400 (less than average in California)
    it means for only 70 hours of billable time you can have an
    accredited degree.

    If you can go to an ABA school, go for it. But DETC is the
    next best option.
