Interesting quote: "'Yes, it's a little more difficult to move forward, logistically speaking, but I really have no choice--I couldn't do it any other way,' says Watley, who graduated in January [from a non-ABA-accredited school] after four years of study, traveled to California to take the bar shortly afterward, and now intends to work in his home state the only way he can: by taking the patent bar exam and practicing in federal court."

If his plan is to prosecute patents, maybe he would have been better off to skip the expensive law school education entirely and just pass the patent bar. Although I'm not sure what the article means by "practicing in federal court" - can you do that without being accredited by the local state bar? And what does the patent bar have to do with it?
