My only concern with the California programs is that even after passing the california bar, you can't sit for any other bar because no other state will recognize it.  The North Carolina Bar Examiners actually stated that I would have to go to law school again.  Personally I do not want to practice law in the courtroom.  My plan was to obtain the degree for the purpuse of career advancement (in corporate compliance).  However my mentor and other individuals in the legal field have explained that I shouldn't limit myself to not being able to practice in the courtroom.  They anticipate that I will get the courtroom itch.  Any suggestions.

For those of you who are curious about DL and Foreign Law degrees please do your own research and post your results.  Initially I researched and decided to enroll in William H. Taft school of Law.  I was assured that if I attended the Attorney Track Program I would be able to sit for the bar in California which would make me eligible to practice in other states. 

I currently reside in OHIO, and I anticipate moving to North Carolina within the Next 4 years.  Part of reason for considering the DL program is my need to be home with my family and the inability for me to quit my job and go to law school full time.  For the record, I currently have a Master's Degree in which I obtained from Tiffin University (for those of you who think I'm taking the easy way out).

To sum it all up I called the North Carolina Bar examiners who advised me that even if I take and pass the Bar in California, I can not sit for the Bar in North Carolina because Taft is not ABA approved.  I would be expected to obtain an aba approved JD Degree.

Upon further research I learned that you can Attend a Foreign accredited Law School (LLB) and (in most states) obtain a LLM and/or take 20 to 24 additional credit hours at a ABA APPROVED SCHOOL and that will qualify you to sit for their bar.  See for yourself..
