We can go at this all day but I choose not too. I originally posted this thread on purpose, asking how other students were doing in their distance learning studies, since this is a distance learning forum. I already knew that I wouldn't really get any responses from current students in DL programs and I knew it would turn into something else LOL. I have come to realize this is an anti - distance learning forum, mostly patrolled by the same people.
Best of luck to everyone in what every direction you choose to complete your legal education. I will be finish with my degree in 7 months, then on to a US LLM to further my education.

Where do you read that, you have been on the site for years of course under a different name and you constantly find a way to poke a hole in the truth and distort the truth, tell false truths and half truths. You don't have to pass a foreign bar exam but you do have to have a foreign law degree plus have a US LLM in American / US Law to take the California bar if you are not a licensed attorney somewhere. I know you don't like the fact that this is an option, its well documented from your previous comments over the past 2 yrs and probably even longer. I came on this site 2 yrs ago before I started my law studies and you still trying to discredit folks that are trying to find alternative ways especially the ones that are going or inquiring about the foreign route. I know from your past comments you find it distastefull that this is a real option but get over it.

I have a plan in place, I may check back in next year and post the status. California will allow foreign attorneys sit for the bar exam but you have to be liscensed somewhere it can be civil or common law country. If you are not licensed then you have to complete First Year of a US law program or enroll in a 1 yr US LLM program in American Legal Studies or US Legal Studies, name of program various on law program but it must cover US Law and Califorina Professional Responsibility course. Best of luck to you.

I'm a non EU resident, I'm in the distance learning program. I live in the US. The school is great not just law program but very innovative school. I use to my own sport agency and I sent a couple US athletes to their National team plus I'm interested in law. The University owns a men and women professional basketball team, and one of my former clients now lives in the UK and is getting a masters degree there. Anyway, I guess there are no current distant learning students on this site. I was curious to know how folks from other distant learning programs were doing/ progressing in their programs.

Northumbria Law School cost me 1200 GBP Year 1, 920 GBP Year 2, and 950 GBP Year 3. Year 1 is your biggest expense, from there your tuition drops for the remaining years, you only paying a continuing student fee and assessment fee. This fee went up slightly this year from 920 to 950 GBP. The total program cost me 3,070 GBP so its close to 5k or slightly under 5K.

Curious to know how folks are progressing with their distance learning studies. I came on this site 2 yrs ago, read all the pros and cons but in the end made my own decision. I'm in my 3rd and final year of law school in the UK. I don't regret it, I received an excellent education thus far for less than 5K.

I respect your answer, I rather hear that from you because I knew that's how you felt the whole time but it's more personal thing to you, but it's Ok. I did my homework and I am proceeding,whether it makes sense to you or not, whether you like it or not the system currently works.

You tell half truths all throughout these boards. Get over it, you can sit for the bar in California, you go around on this board like you are an authority on the various rules which you are not. LMAO. People check the bar examiners for yourself, ask the correct questions as it relates to foreign law schools.

@ Financialtaxguy - California Bar Examiners makes no distinction between an online LLB or ground LLB. I spoke to the Bar Examiners, spoke to the actual person who wrote the rules to the link you provided and I got the 411 from the persons mouth. I asked all the tough questions that I recieved from this board, the examiner laughed how folks try to interpret the rules and tell them what it suppose to be. The examiner who wrote the rules was very helpful and broke the rules down for me and even walked me through the process online.
Also, I personally know someone that graduated from Florida Coastal online LLM in October 2012, they are taking the California Bar in February 2013, their law degree is in civil law. Also, their are a couple online LLM Programs in American Legal Studies online that gear their curriculum to meet the California Bar Requirements. Some of the schools are FCSL, Regent, Washington University at St. Louis, and John F. Kennedy. I have written communication and verbal communication on the first 3 law schools, you dont have to be a lawyer to be accepted in their program, a qualifying LLB will be just fine.

Well I plan to take the QLTS but that's further down the road. I have 1 more year of my LLB program and then LLM, then bar exam. I'm enjoying this journey of road less traveled by. I have 3 degrees from very good schools and I make a six figure income and my career is still on the up rise and it wasn't the name of the schools I went to that got me where I am, it was my hard work, drive, and perseverance. I have a lot of close college friends that are lawyers most have their own practice and surprisingly they are very supportive. I'll probably just use my legal education to enhance my career or go into immigration law.
