Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Novus University School of Law

I asked about it earlier. See post.

Otherwise, I recently received a notice through snail mail saying that if I haven't yet registered for classes at Novus, that I should do so immediately.

I put it into the same file as things such as the offer of a home equity loan, and loans up to $250 K. Just because I qualify doesn't mean that I should do it.

General Board / trusts and consideration

A settlor designates that a trust is a gift with no consideration other than love and affection.

Is the love and affection enforceable??

L.L.M. Board / Re: Tax LLM

I only know one person with a LLM Taxation. He probably wouldn't mind if I provide some of the information..


He graduated law school and worked as a deputy prosecutor. After a while, he and the prosecutor decided to start their own private practice firm--he went to John Marshall--Chicago for his LLM Taxation. (He also has an LLM International Business and Trade). His partner got his LLM in International Business and Trade and also has an MBA.

Is he happy with his specialization? I suppose. He is always busy.

General Board / Re: How does your faith co-exist with government?
« on: April 21, 2006, 07:29:53 PM »
ah, well. I'm not religious either. I think if someone wants to practice unbiased law, the person should avoid religion.

Otherwise, you have Jews defending Muslims, Muslims upset about the Zionist judges, Christian judges who don't really understand where the Jews are coming from and who really don't like the Muslims. The Christians and Muslims think the Scientologists are crazy, the Jews are all going to Hell, and who don't understand the Buddhists and Hindus at all. The Baptists don't like the Mormons, the Methodists don't like the Jehovah's Witnesses, ---and basically a court room full of various religions cannot be unbiased; it would also make it difficult to find a jury of actual peers.

Now, what about religion in the Supreme Court? Are our Justices really unbiased? Are they lawyers first, Justices first, or advocates of their religions first?

Now, I'm not saying that some religious people are not good lawyers or judges. In fact, only those with some experience in such matters would understand clients and their religious persuations and beliefs. However, religious people are often concerned more with morality and rightness and wrongness, not laws and legality. As someone once told me, some of the most religious and moral people are incarcerated. Just because a guy wouldn't cheat his partner or cheat on his wife doesn't mean that he wouldn't intentionally rape or murder someone.

Pardon me. I was not attempting to criticize Novus U., but was simply asking for the information---in writing-- because I wouldn't want "false advertising" or "breach of oral contract" as the first course.

I sent a response email to Novus stating that I had not yet applied and was simply asking for the information. No response.

Without the personal experience, I would surmise that the two biggest reasons are:

The time commitment for school and study;
and....the fact a person drastically changes during law school. The s.o. is in love with the "before law school" person. Staying in love during the process of changing is not an easy thing.

...and hence, Novus University remains a mystery.

Thus far, asking Novus for information via email results with no response.

Contacting the WAUC results with a forwarded email to Novus, which results with a
standardized email from Novus stating that you have completed the application process, now please complete the registration form.

If you have any questions, please call the toll free number.

Perhaps the traditional brick and mortar law school students are worried because they can't see the competition.

In all reality, I can discern some advantage of DL law schools, in that the students are not instilled with the professors' political persuasions, relious beliefs or prejudices, such as they would be during lectures. The students wouldn't become carbon copies of their professors.

Could you provide some experienced opinions about the school, the policies, the structure of the programs, and the textbooks?
