    This was closed in the adjacent thread, but there are indeed a few states that allow people who did not go to the bar to practice law, notably Virginia and California. Of course, you have to complete a program of self-study of the same scope as an actual law school program under the supervision of an already admitted attorney. In the case of California, you have to take the "Baby Bar" in the first year before you can progress. Both have specific reporting requirements for your self-study.

    In actuality, it's probably easier to just attend law school.

    The ABA doesn't control who gets admitted to any bar. It's up to the states to regulate that. Though they follow ABA model rules or use ABA's accreditation of schools, doesn't mean much.
