online law school and not working in Ca

Has anyone gone to online law school (AKA Concord) and work in patent field outside Ca?  In particular in NY.
What can't  I do in NY that a graduate of ABA approved NY school can do?  Assuming I pass the patent bar.
 
Is this worth pursuing?  I'm 49 year old EE/SW engineer looking to go to law school on line and live and work in NY.

If you are leaving CA then stick to an ABA school. The online JD will not allow you to sit for the NY bar. I am sure that you have already checked th NY bar website and looked at the requirements for testing. Since you asked, PTO bar is enough to file and prosecute and practicing law in NY may not be an option...... so skip the online school.

A patent agent or a patent attorney not licensed in NY probably cannot do infringement opinion or other litigation related work.

Concord has a new president (former senior official) from ABA.  It may be possible for Concord to be ABA-approved down the road.
 
You might want to talk to Concord and see whether that is the possibility by the time when you graduate in four years or later.

Ah, the mail Law school saga!  
 
I am an Agent and considering signing up for Concord, figuring that in four years I would then be able to pick up some of that Copyright trade.  
 
Has anyone on this board done it? If I understand the California rules, you can only sit for the exam in California, and no matter how long you practice in CA, you would not be allowed to sit for the bar anywhere else.  Correct?
 
From the posting above, that would not allow you to do any litigation work outside CA? (But would allow Trademark/Copyright in front of the USPTO regardless of what state you live in?).
