Bottom line, there are plenty of people who get a JD and never practice or even take the bar.  They may end up making more money than lawyers in the business world.  In which case I'd say the JD served them well.

Depends on if you are ok with some on campus trips

Not 100% what you are asking for, but still something kind of close. Why bother though? Nothing to be gained in it unless you want to go into academia and you have said before you refuse to even become a real lawyer due to wanting to stay where you were before going your JD or LLM.

You got me confused with someone else bro.  But thanks for the info, never heard of a DLP, that is something new.  Looks like these are public law type degrees, no JD required.  Yes, useful for academia or employement with a INGO.

Anyone know of any online PhD or LLD in law besides UNISA or Leiden?

What I mean is you seem seriously ticked off about nothing in particular.  It is worth repeating that going to online school in the UK and then taking a LLM seems like a round about way to get to the California Bar unless one was trying to avoid the FYLSE.  In which case it is brilliant.  Sure one can go for a year to a bricks and mortar school too, but us online grads pride ourselves on doing it the hard way.  I intentionally dropped out of law school the first semester so I could do it purely online (though I didn't know it at the time what a brilliant move I was making).  Sure other lawyers may sneer but that would have done that anyway.

1. learn to quote
2. You don't know what cheating means
3. you have no clue what the CA bar rules are then idiot

That was a joke. But you'll make a good lawyer LOL.

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.
