If you go the distance learning route, you want a school that not only has a bar pass rate history but can point to actively practicing attorney grads - Concord and Taft can do that as can others.

Actually I have met faculty at a HBCU that had only a JD and also Community College faculty with just a JD, but not an online JD.

I am not impressed by AHU, I turned down an instructor's gig with them several years ago.  My guess is that they cater to foreign students  who do not know any better.

And who exactly is Novus?  Is there even a single attorney associated with the school, if not, how can it purport to grant a JD?  Just because they say they are a law school does not make them one.

 :o A retired college professor would have realized Novus in an unaccredited offshore diploma mill perhaps?

He made it up.

Only if he was a lawyer, see Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky:

"When asked about the nationality of his parents, Zhirinovsky once replied with a sentence that almost instantly became proverbial: "My mother is a Russian while my father is a lawyer."

No but without a PhD, it would have been difficult.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: LLB as a 'leg-up' for JD application?

LLB is good for a solicitor's training contract in England - the English legal system is similar but definitely not the same as in the US.

The UoL External LLB is a great degree however it makes little sense to use as a qualifier for a JD application. English law while similar in some respects is not the same as US law. The LLB will qualify you for a 1 year training contract in England after which time you will be awarded a Practicing Certificate. Then you can try to qualify for the New York or another Bar Exam without a JD.  The key here is whether as US citizen you could get the necessary work permit for a training contract in London, I suggest having a dialog with UoL about this as it is something I am sure they deal with from all their non EU citizen students.
