Will Distance Learning be an option for law schools in the future?

Above the Law blog  had a great post on the status of distance education for law schools.  Currently the ABA does not accredit online only law schools but will be re-visiting this topic (Standard 306) in the fall of 2010.

Rethinking Higher Education had an article on distance education and the moot court competition. 

Ross Mitchell graduated from the nation’s first online-only law school four years ago and in November won the right to take the Massachusetts bar exam.

So things may be changing….
