Why not allow law schools to establish two degree programs for regular students -- e.g. a two-year L.L.B. and a three-year J.D.?
Let students decide after one year which degree program they will pursue.
Either degree program requires completion of a set of courses that will qualify the student to take the bar exam.
Those students who are independently wealthy, who may want to teach law, who have judicial clerkships, who want to do clinical/internship work, etc. can get the three-year J.D.

Except for that messy internment of the Japanese, he was a law god!

FDR has little or no record of law practice and, in the list of Presidents to date, had little or no respect for the U.S. Constitution or stare decisis. Although it makes "good print," I wouldn't hold him up for the proposition of a 2 year legal program.
