Distance Education Law Schools / Re: 1 L starting school in July 2010

This thread was hijacked by people that hate online law school students because we figured out a way to get a legal education for less and without physically attending. They are just jealous and hateful because they are over $100,000.00 in debt and most of them failed their bar.

It is true, not only can you tranfer up to 12 credits from an unaccredited law school, but you can also transfer in experiential learning credits.

Waiting for you to cite the law you're talking about.

Waiting...

Do your own research you lazy piece of __________.
I'm not your mother, and you would make a crap lawyer if you can't find the information.
Attorney's charge for their time to do research and I'm not giving you free information.
Search it yourself. I have the knowledge, and I'm not giving it to you.
Go pay an attorney to research for you.

Novus is not recognized by any state. Novus is not recognized by the Law Society of England and Wales. A Novus degree will not entitle one to practice law ever. And I should know because I am a graduate of Taft and licensed in the US and several Commonwealth jurisdictions.

I do not support the ABA but I do not go in for sovereign citizen nonsense .

By the way, they do not grant a JD in the UK - they grant a bachelors in law which is the equivalent of a JD even though the ABA claims a JD is the equivalent to a PhD which it is not.

Jonlevy, was Taft a good school? I am still searching for an online law school. I was thinking of attending Concorde, but there are too many students on this forum that dropped out because it was too much homework, so I changed my mind.  How was Taft for you? Thanks.

Your statement is false. A law student can transfer up to 12 credits from a non ABA law school, including distance education and/or expirential learning credits.

Actually, his statement is true.  Most ABA law schools will not accept transfer from a non-ABA law school.  This came up on another thread.  After a little scrounging, all I could find was about 3 of the lowest-ranked ABA schools in the country that would accept non-ABA credits.  Figure my search wasn't completely exhaustive, but even if there were 10 or 20, that's a very, very small percentage of all ABA law schools in the country.

The statement is false. ALL ABA approved law schools legally have to accept up to 12 credits from non ABA law schools, including unaccredited online law schools. It is the law, and it is is writing.

This is clearly misleading:

http://novus.edu/BARADMISSIONS.htm

Where is the ABA or the State Bars? They ought to get an an injunction against Novus instead of trying to make life miserable for non ABA graduates who have graudated from a legitimate law program. Novus proves the ABA is more concerned with maintaining its monopoly rather than actually protecting the consumer from fake law schools.

Your post makes no sense. There is no such thing as a fake law school. Anybody can open an online law school or any school online or in state. Novus is a real law school. They just are not recognized by the ABA or any state.

The ABA has the monopoly on law school education. Several online law schools are currently in court battling for their right for ABA approval, however, the reason that ABA will not allow online law schools ABA approval is that the ABA has a secret oath as all school members have agreed to overcharge students for their legal education. If the ABA allowed online law schools approval, then every law school within the United States would close their doors because they would not have any students, as all law students would attend online for a fraction of the price. Currently, it cost over $150,000.00 to attend a brick and mortor law school. In contrast, an online law student can get a J.D for under $6,000.00. Some online law schools allow the student to make paymens of only $200.00 a month.

A person can get a J.D from the UK and several other Countries for $2,000.00.
America is the ONLY place on the planet that charges $150,000.00 to attend law school. The ABA should be closed down and each stated should be able to govern themselves.

Somebody should SUE the ABA the same as they sued the KKK, and forced them to close.
If every attorney stopped supporting the ABA, then they would be forced to close down.

What state will allow you to sit for their bar exam with a J.D from this online law school?
What online LLM program will allow you to attend with a J.D. from this program?

I think you would be better off buying a degree from one of those online degree mills for a hundred bucks. They come an official seal and transcripts and they claim that they are genuine degrees and they even offer transcript verification by a live person from the college.
Or better yet, you can print out a J.D. degree from your own computer that says you graduated from one of those closed online law schools. Since they are closed, nobody would know the difference. You can put your own phone number down for the transcript verification, then whey they call, you can pretend you are the admissions office and tell them that the fake law degree is official and that the student(yourself) is highly recommended and you had a 4.0 GPA, and then you can take any state bar exam that your little heart desires.  ;)

Most ABA law schools do not even consider online law school work as transfer material.

Your statement is false. A law student can transfer up to 12 credits from a non ABA law school, including distance education and/or expirential learning credits.

They dont have a phone number with a live person on the end. It's a voice mail.

Actually, they could end up being an "overqualified paralegal" with a bunch of debt they can't pay!  As badly as I hate to use saying like this, in legal education the motto of "plan your work, work your plan" really makes sense.  Know where you want to end up before you begin, then pick the best road to get there.

It's not a bunch of debt. London external law school's LLB program is less than $2,000. a year for the 3 year program. London and other Countries are known for giving people an education at a reduced fee. You can get a whole law degree or any degree in other countries for less than $5000.00. The same exact degree that cost over $150,000. in America. America accepts foreign degrees no matter what kind of degree it is; Economics, Law, Education, Politics, Psychology, Management, Marketing, Business, etc...
