That just means go to one of the on campus (but still not ABA) schools for year one and then transfer online............(if that is the only reason) and you'd be exempt

That would be cheating!  We only do online here.

There is one distinct advantage, no California First Year Law Student Exam required.  Let's face it the FYLSE has about a 20% pass rate. Bypassing that is smart if you have time and resources. A UK LLB, US LLM and a bar pass course would put one in a good position to pass the bar.  The FYLSE is always dicey.  Online law is a numbers game, this shaves the odds down a bit.

Novus is only incorporated in the RMI, 100% certainty they operate out of California.  There is also a long history here of law school scams run  by the same group:

It would be a very short list of zero since the Novus degree would not qualify anyone to take a bar so if by some miracle a Novus grad ever did the pass a bar, the Novus degree would not be the qualifying reason but some other qualification.

Anyone can set up a school.  Novus is an unregulated and unlicensed school that awards an unaccredited law degree. Be interesting to know if the people running NOVUS who are US persons  have complied with FATCA laws regarding the Marshall Islands corporation?

Problem here is with lazy incompetent state bar regulators who actually do have standing to go after scammers like Novus.  Likewise, you'd think the ABA might be interested.  Not a chance because there is no money in it for them.  And really except for the equally incompetent and greedy law schools who admit anyone with a "foreign law degree" and the tuition money there wouldn't be a problem.  A Novus grad shouldn't be able to fool anyone; it takes about all of five minutes on Google to figure out there are no law schools in the Marshall islands and all Marshall Islands attorneys studied at ABA law schools.

Don't dis Fleming, without Fleming I wouldn't have passed the bar most likely.

I would say DL learners are well suited to be solos since they have essentially taught themselves the law and therefore already have the basic qualities a solo needs which is self reliance and focus.  ABA learners are spoon fed by the law schools by comparison. You know what correspondence law consists of - reading Gilbert's outlines or whatever the online version is these days.  Concord if it is like its parent KU, might even have live lectures online.  Additionally, most successful DL students already have careers or are ex military or law enforcement and have networks and have been around the courts.  So I agree most 24 year olds wouldn't be capable of  going solo due to lack of life experience but that is not the DL demographic IMO.

"But saying that all is left to eat is your own poop doesn't make doing it a good idea."

I don't understand the attitude, what is wrong with being a solo practitioner?  About 40-50% of lawyers in private practice are solo, get a grip.
