Skip Law School, Be a Lawyer Anyway - Can law school dropouts really join the bar?: "In New York...the requirement is that a prospective lawyer must have completed at least one year at an ABA-approved law school. After that, the future attorney can fulfill his educational requirements by engaging in something called 'law office study' or 'clerking for the bar' in essence, an apprenticeship at a law firm. Such apprenticeships were standard in the 19th century, before the proliferation of law schools: Neither Abraham Lincoln nor Clarence Darrow, for example, graduated from law school."
