In the US, UofL would be only one with name recognition.

I might add, it's pretty standard in college too to have the professor use their own book.

Fleming's materials are well worth the price - likely the best study materials out there for online students.  I would not have passed the bar in 1992 without Fleming's help.

Ask the schools' admission departments and explain your situation, they are for profit schools and will be glad to help you enroll if at possible.

USDLA exists, anyone can join, it is a lobbying not accrediting organization:

Same with CAEL, so the organizations are not fake, its just they do not accredit.

It would be like claiming your AARP membership makes you a lawyer.

He is perpetuating the bogus story about the DC Bar accepting bogus law students.

 "Novus does have two accreditations "  and both are bogus.

Here is the truth:

"NOVUS UNIVERSITY IS INCORPORATED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS. NOVUS UNIVERSITY IS A PRIVATE POSTSECONDARY DEGREE GRANTING EDUCATIONAL CORPORATION AND ALL DEGREES ARE GRANTED BY NOVUS UNIVERSITY OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS ,UNDER ITS  CORPORATE CHARTER AND THE AUTHORITY OF ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS. NOVUS UNIVERSITY/NOVUS LAW SCHOOL OFFERS INSTRUCTION ONLINE ONLY AND WEB-BASED AND NOT IN ANY COUNTRY, STATE OR POLITICAL ENTITY. NOVUS UNIVERSITY/NOVUS LAW SCHOOL IS NOT ACCREDITED BY THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION."

Got that - a so called school incorporated offshore. http://www.novus.edu/generalinfo/terms_of_use.htm

here are the so called accredting  agencies:

1.  First year Bar, I'd say 4-1 against ever passing regardless of retakes.  Most of those taking it are not going to be lawyer material.

2.  DL is open book, proctored exams hah-hah, we know human nature, better have a good memory when you take the bar.  But I might add, one of the hardest exams I ever took was the English QLTT and it was open book.

3.. No idea what a SCALE is, its 4 years for DL California law schools.   Can't imagine anyone passing the bar with 2 years.

As I have said before, the best candidate for a DL law school is someone already working in the legal system with a phenomenal memory who can't attend a regular law school.

"They have the scales set up against them. Plus no curve online either. An 80% on campus in any curved 1L class is an A. Online it's a C. "

I always wondered why my Taft GPA was something like 2.8.

Legal interns work under supervision and do some surprisingly good work but its not the same as being an attorney.  All those types of cases I mentioned do pay pretty well considering they are not all that complex.  The real issue is that you have to deal with a lot of upset people to earn your pay and not everyone is willing to do that.  Some solos do keep a loaded fire arm at hand just in case.  I've been punched, sued, threatened with death several times, and had a delusional client show up at my door with a loaded rifle.  Colleagues have been spit on and stabbed by their own clients.  I can't even remember half the stuff.
