Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Novus Law School

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?

333
He made it up.

334
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.
