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

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.

Online Law Schools / Re: LLB as a 'leg-up' for JD application?
« on: August 23, 2012, 07:15:30 AM »
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.

Online Law Schools / Re: Concord Law JD --- Starting Sept 4, 2012

One big thing in Concord's favor - it is a subsidiary of a billion dollar corporation - Washington Post Company and Kaplan University, that is something a lot of ABA law schools cannot boast.  There are a lot of deep pockets there rooting for your success.  If you can afford the tuition, you made the right choice.

I have a current Practising Certificate for England and I can't get a work permit. 

The scheme outlined would only be viable for a US citizen who has dual citizenship from a EU country.

Hey here's some good news, with your MASL law degree you can be an Advocate before a real US government Administrative Agency.  Of course you can do that with a HS diploma too but don't tell everyone.

Did you get your MBA from an offshore diploma mill, of course not.  Then why would you think a JD can be obtained with so little effort and expense? How about telling us the grand qualifications of the Dean of MASL?  Did he award himself a JD?

I note the original poster has no answer on the work permit issue, curious eh?
