IF this was real it would 1. Be done in your real voice
and
2. Wouldn't have comments blocked for it
3. The Prof would have a name


Race Baiting. Admin ban this troll. I bet this fool failed out and is looking to blame someone. I bet they got "yelled at" for good reason and can't digest it.

The minutes thing is weird, but I've come to EXPECT stupid for the sake of stupid when it comes to the law be it law school or licensing boards. I get the feeling that being stupid for the sake of stupid makes them honestly think that the average person will see it and go "oh, its too different for me to understand, and they must be smart since they went to college so they must be lightyears ahead of me in intelligence"
nope, its just stupid for the sake of stupid


83 horus? I dang well wish I had that option. 7 hours less of student loans!

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: LLB (Graduate Entry)

I plan to attend a LLM at a ABA approved school.  For the California Bar, the LLM can be from an ABA approved school or a California approved law school.
Wise choice. The bar pass rate goes from around 70% to about 14% of unaccredited JD's, and I imagine the same idea is true at the LLM level too.

I still have to do an LLM in US Law which is only 1 yr of additional study.
Pick a location to take it at yet, or exploring all options for awhile?
If its CA, does it have to be an ABA LLM, or can you do it at one of the non ABA online deals?

General Board / Law Schools that require less than 90 credits to get a JD
« on: November 22, 2014, 06:14:49 PM »
I got bored and looked up LLM stuff (just in case I ever wanted to punish myself someday for no good reason) and noticed that some ABA approved law schools appear to not require the full 90 credits for a JD.
example:
http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissions/facts/documents/2013-ABA-Standard-509-Information-Report.pdf
"Number of credit hours required to graduate 84"


I thought 90 credits was an ABA requirement?

I had my LLB evaluated from a credential evaluation agency that is on the California Bar Examiner list of approved evaluators.  The results came back today and the overall summary of my evaluation is that my LLB from the UK is equivalent to a JD in the United States.
So are they going to let you sit it, or do you have to take extra classes first?

General Off-Topic Board / Re: You can now be served by facebook!

That probably makes sense, but it is still tough to distinguish. Notice by publication is always a remedy available, but I guess as Newspapers die out the internet is the better source to provide adequate notice
I still support notice by publication, but I'd support making it a rule to require them to at least try (at the same time) to text, email, facebook/etc the person while putting it in the paper (increased odds, not decreased) That would seem reasonable to me to reduce odds of "but I didn't read it" tear jerk stories from people actively trying to avoid service.

Process servers won't be to happy about this. I don't know how I feel about it, many people are not to Facebook savy, and if proof of service by mail is often insufficient I don't understand how it can be done electornically, especially with all the technical glitches that might occur. Also, many people do not check their Facebook account daily or even weekly.
I believe this was reserved as a "last resort" by someone going out of their way not to be served (some people don't keep a steady address even for mail, but are addicted to facebook) And I think it was still done through a process serving company.
