California Law - Why does going in person requires more time than online law school?

Options for Law
  1. Go to an ABA accredited law school
    1. 2 Years accelerated (very rare)
    2. 3 Years Full Time
    3. 4 Years Part Time
  2. Go to a State accredited law school
    1. 3 Years Full Time (rare)
    2. 4 Years Part Time
  3. Go to a registered, but unaccredited law school
    1. Baby Bar after first year
    2. Online
      1. 4 Years of 864 hours per year
    3. In Person
      1. 4 Years of 270 contact hours per year (this is full time status)
        1. At least 1080 hour per year, if law school is graduate level
          1. 1080 academic hours = 900 clock hours > 864 clock hours
        2. Graduate Units requires at least 3 hours (to a maximum of 7 hours) of homework for every hour of lecture
          1. It is also at least 2 hours (to a maximum of 6 hours) of homework for every two hours of light laboratory
          2. It is also at least 1 hour (to a maximum of 5 hours) of homework for every three hours of moderate laboratory
          3. It is also no homework  (to a maximum of 4 hours of homework) for every four hours of heavy laboratory 
          4. A graduate unit (semester hour) is 60 academic hours to 120 academic hours
            1. That is 50 clock hours to 100 clock hours
        3. If students work the same 864 hours, then the ratio is 2.2 hours for every hour of classwork, right within the range of undergraduate level unless someone explain which component of law school is laboratory type of work
          1. Undergraduate Units requires at least 2 hours (to a maximum of 5 hours) of homework for every hour of lecture
            1. It is also at least 1 hours (to a maximum of 4 hours) of homework for every two hours of light laboratory
            2. It is also no homework (to a maximum of 3 hours of homework) for every three hours of moderate laboratory
            3. It is also no homework  (to a maximum of 2 hours of homework) for every four hours of heavy laboratory
            4. An undergraduate unit (semester hour) is 45 academic hours to 90 academic hours
              1. That is 37.5 clock hours to 75 clock hours
  4. Apprenticeship
    1. Baby Bar after first year
    2. 4 years of Apprenticeship at 18 hours per week for 48 weeks per year
    3. Teacher of Apprenticeship requires at least 5 years experience as an active attorney, and is still active
    4. Materials taught in the Apprenticeship must be identical to those in law school.
  5. Complete the first year of ABA accredited law school in good standing (allows a person to skip the Baby Bar*) and then do 3 years of any of the following:
    1. State Accredited Law School
    2. Registered Unaccredited Law School
    3. Apprenticeship
    4. *Law Schools have the right to revoke good standing to decrease this loophole. 
    5. *ABA also have the right to revoke Law School accreditation if they knowingly allow this abuse.
