Re: Education Experience: NWCLU vs Concord
Posted by interested too! on 10/27/09
I am very interested as well in the NWCU program, from my online
research it seems the best way to go. I have no college
education, and I haven't even finished high-school, I just went
to ninth grade, and lately heard that in CA it's possible to
take the bar exam without actually going to law school. So
yesterday and today I took 5 CLEPs necessary, aced 'em all, and
here I am!
Does anyone know what I can expect in the job market as a lawyer
that that didn't go to a traditional law school? In terms of
salary, and what kind of work would be available.
