L.L.M. Board / Re: Applying to an LLM with a Misdemeanor

I think we are saying (for the most part) the same thing but in different ways.
I think we just differ in our definitions of "a few" vs "a lot". Let's just say I know a lot personally, but mixed in with all JD holders in the world, they are a finite minority. (I have been interesting places and met interesting people for interesting reasons)

As to your comparison, I still don't think you get what I was trying to get at. DURING vs PRIOR. Its as simple as that. Think of it this way. You have an employee/tenant/wife (whatever) who was a bad person, you decide to cut them a break when others might not, but if they do those bad things TO YOU AFTER THAT its different.

And to be fair, I've known people who were suspended after going to jail who got their license back too. The world is a bigger place than CA, which isn't as liberal on all things as you might think. Think about comparing its hardest bar in the nation (arguably) to WI no bar at all for instate grads.

Overall, I think you and I can both at least agree OP is fine. Yes look into the specific area in question, but heck with Online LLM options being ABA approved now, I don't think its an issue too much at all. If one says no, keep applying. OP will get a yes. 100% promise it.

The Director of MASL is Dr Paschal Baxter he has a linked in account.I also think he is graduate of a Calif law school.Novus is very expensive and in my opinion may not be worth it.Using your figures of a passing rate of 20% after passing the baby BAR which also has a very low passing rate does not bide well for the non ABA route to becoming a lawyer .
Novus is dirt cheap, and also NOT ABLE TO SIT THE BAR. So the stats you gave are straight up lies. If anyone sits the bar with Novus they qualified WITHOUT it anyways.

Now I have to ask, does anyone have a link to this "school" that is compared to the illegal fake school with fake stats?
Sorry to multiple post on this, but this is just sad

Some of the California distance learning and correspondence law degrees are recognized by other academic instutions - Taft, California Southern, Southwestern, and Henley-Putnam are accredited by DETC.
Even if one does not pass the bar - the degree has some recognition as opposed to ones that don't or like MA$L never will.
DETC is national, most don't respect that. If you want to aim for that, go to Concord at least they are Regional (the only one that is I think)

All that sounds good but really means nothing .I think a MBA or PHD from University of Phoenix or AIU   well known on line schools, WOULD   BE MONEY BETTER SPENT..

You are only kidding, right??
How so, seems spot on to me.
Even more so when you factor in Regional Accrediting vs non accredited at all

How do you know if there are any lawyers on there staff.Who reviews there work.?WHY IS CALIF the standard for non ABA SCHOOLS ? i THINK WITH ALL THE CALIF schools and the amount of students who get all the way to passing the REAL BAR the #s are not good.I think   WITH OUT GOING TO A ABA approved school your chances of be coming a lawyer in any state is very low..
their (multiple times)
an
without is one word
not sure if I've even since CALIF as an abbreviation
I not I

not sure how to deal with that

If you don't like to speak disrespectfully of the deceased, then don't!
Its ok to speak reality, his post was pretty respectful all things considered.
Reality doesn't stop being reality once you die.

LOTS of JD students have felonies who later get licensed just fine as well.

I don't think lots of JD students have felonies, and then get licensed. Misdemeanors , yes, but not felonies. Even in CA (which is pretty lax) a felony conviction results in disbarment proceedings.

If someone has a felony they better check with their state bar before spending three years and $100k on law school.
I know a few personally. As for disbarment, that is post license. Apples to corncrops.
I'm not saying don't check with your homestate either, since yes it does vary by state (thus why I said outright that you can get into schools without being able to get licensed in that state)
I also used it as an extreme example to show OP to relax.

Mid-terms in law school?

Also, half of that stuff is not necessary.

Most likely a Cooley student wrote it, they have those there

Some states may not let you get licensed in their state, but you can get the degree all the same, there are no ABA rules against it for the JD or the LLM (even if you Charles Manson in theory)
