Some interesting facts about University of Alabama Law School

The University of Alabama offers two online graduate degree programs. The LLM Concentrations in Taxation and Business Transactions are designed for recently graduated and practicing lawyers who want a rigorous, broad-based education in tax or business law without leaving their home or office.

The Graduate Tax program provides an educational opportunity to obtain a broad-based and in-depth advanced degree in tax law. Students can choose electives allowing for concentrations in either Estate Planning or Business Tax. The Graduate Business Concentration trains lawyers to serve the needs of clients throughout the life cycle of a business venture. The program offers technical training and skills-based instruction all through live, interactive online technologies.

Courses are taught by distinguished faculty and experienced tax lawyers from throughout the country. Many of the professors are authors and experts in their fields. Students attend virtual classrooms, where they interact fully with professors and classmates through video and audio. Students see and speak to their instructors, chat with classmates, and see and even share a whiteboard.

Although this is an online program, there are two required weekend visits to campus. Each two-year cycle begins with an Orientation weekend session at the Law School in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This is an opportunity for students to meet faculty and classmates, begin to build the professional relationships that are such an important part of any LLM program, and learn the technology they will be using for the next two years. Students are also introduced to a course in tax research. Then, at the end of the second summer, students are required to return to the Law School to take comprehensive exams covering the first-year basic, required courses.

Exams are administered through a secure course management system and the virtual classroom technology offers ways to periodically assess the level of comprehension (quizzes, polling devices, etc.). The program website provides for online registration and book ordering, course materials, and announcements. Attendance in the live virtual class is required but video streams and audio downloads of previous lectures are available after class. All online students have equal access to the Law School's library resources and legal databases through the web-based systems. An independent study/tax research course is available each semester to enable students to qualify for financial aid or loan deferment.

A bit of an update: my gf called in yesterday and asked them what is going on. They said they are planning to have decisions for all pre-January applicants released by the end of April. Ik it's not much but it's some movement at least!
have the rejected anyone who applied in Jan?
still waiting
Hearing that we'll know something by the end of next week.
How do you know?
Heard from some current 1Ls there but you never know
Any movement?
I got nothing
Got an email today (4/29) asking if I was still interested in admissions and if so, they would get me an answer in 48 hours.
Anyone else heard anything?
@WildSplit: I got the same email late in the evening of 4/29. Responded even later that evening. Got another email from Dean Arrington this morning asking if I would mind submitting any scholarship offers I have from other schools for her to pass on to the scholarship committee. Got the acceptance email about 2 hours later and scholarship info should arrive sometime this week.
Probably not a great sign that I still haven't heard anything.
I got the A this morning via email at 10 AM
@LeanEagerDragonfly: unfortunately, I'm very sorry tp say that being below the LSAT median at a right angle school like Bama pretty much always spells doom. Being below both medians is admissions death. Sorry, bud.
Anybody have any advice on getting off the waitlist here? It's my top choice
How long has it been since you were WL/you send your LOCI?
Got waitlisted March 8th and sent an LOCI then. Just recently graduated and sent them an updated resume highlighting an increased GPA and new job. Also working on getting another rec letter sent in
Are we expecting any WL movement soon?
hope so, but no idea
they only have one seat deposit and it was in April so seems unlikely
Where did you send your LOCI? I just got waitlisted today.
To the admissions office email
Also did you get an email from them? My lawhub status changed to waitlisted but I haven't heard anything from the admissions office themselves
Yes, I got an email from Claude Arrington
When is the 2nd seat deposit
It may have already passed. I know there was one on May 20th
Just withdrew from my full ride offer at Alabama after having paid the $100 seat deposit. So now is definitely the time to ask Alabama for an increase in your offers or be on the look out for them to try to fill my spot. Good luck everyone!
Thanks for sharing! GL!
Does anyone know of them accepting anyone off the WL yet?
