    This sounds awfully familiar.

    Rebecca Valois is working to become a lawyer — without setting foot in a law school.

    She’s studied for three years at the private Virginia practice of her mother-in-law, Judith Valois, who was admitted to the state bar in 1986 after getting her legal education from her husband.

    They are “law readers” — people who study law in offices or judges’ chambers rather than classrooms.

    …”If I were redesigning the entire legal education system it would definitely provide more of a real-world, mentored experience,” Blasi said.

    …Judith Valois, who supervised the studies of both her daughters-in-law, said friends tease her about being the “Valois School of Law.”

    She said a big benefit to law reading is that students get one-on-one instruction from someone who cares about them.

    Home(law)schooling is even more unusual than homeschooling. I think the folks who try this route are pretty gutsy.
