Legally Blonde Home Scholar Leads Colorado for Equal Rights
I met Kristi Burton two summers ago in Oklahoma City, and she's the epitome of perky. If you like hearing about grassroots activists who are committed to the pro-life cause, you'll enjoy reading this Denver Postpiece about Kristi's crusade.
The article, however, makes it seem like Oak Brook is only for homeschoolers (and why do they care if Kristi has a college degree, anyway?). Nope. Mid-career professionals, with no ties to home ed, are also an important part of the 'student body.' The stick-with-it homeschooled kiddos and their remarkable ability to pass the Baby Bar and Bar (like the fella I blogged about on Monday) are a big reason why the school has received well-deserved props from LawTutor.org and is attracting adult learners.
Bit off the subject: Another affordable (but equally as challenging) online law school is Northwestern California University. Phil Maymin, the libertarian writer, is enrolled in NWCULAW's JD (Bar) program. There's also a non-Bar program which is ideal for those who don't aspire to be attorneys.
Back to the topic: Ingrid Schlueter interviews Kristi (and Mark).
