No, top online law schools are not competitive with the top brick-and-mortar law schools. The reason is you can't get a law degree online. No, they are not competitive with the brick-and-mortar law schools. You may be able to take some classes and obtain your undergrad degree, but there isn't an online law school.

There are a number of law schools in the New York City area (as well as several others upstate). Some of the top 14 law schools in the country are New York Schools (the top 14 tend to be on a separate level from all other schools in many peoples' minds). The New York schools among that group are: Columbia University New York University Cornell University Other strong, top 50 law schools in New York City include: Fordham University, Cardozo Law (Yeshiva University). There are also schools in the city at Brooklyn College of Law and New York College of Law The schools have very different admissions requirements so it is very much a factor of IF you can go to a school before its where you SHOULD go.

According to US News and World Reports, Yale is the top law school in the nation. (The full list can be seen here http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/rankings).However, don't limit yourself simply to an ivy league schools. Yale law school has an admissions rate of 8-10%. There are numbers of schools with fantastic law programs that aren't Ivy League schools (NYU is 5th, Berkeley 6th, etc.) Don't go to a school just for a name, go because you know it is the best fit for you. Then you will truly be happy with the education you are receiving!

Look at the U.S. News and World Report's ranking of law schools- redone every year, but the same schools come out in the top every time. You best chances of finding the job you want at the firm you want are if you attend a top law school- if you can get in. If not, your state law school costs less than private law schools- if you can get in. Check requirements in the state where you want to practice. You will probably need to attend an ABA (American Bar Association) accredited law school- so be wary of foreign law schools and online schools.
