Online law school class offers greater flexibility and many advantages over the traditional school. This highly technical video shows the technological challenges for law schools to offer online classes.

- quality – ask about bar passage rate of students, as well as job placement rates in legal careers 9 months after graduation
- support – video conferencing, email and chat rooms are the means of interaction with students and professors
