Angie you are mistaken - MASL grads cannot take the California Bar. The reason MASL is not a registered California distance learning school is because there is no attorney associated with it.  Ask yourself, who runs the school, do you even know and what is their credential?  I know you want to be an attorney some day so learn to follow the rules, there is no short cut to becoming an attorney, only the normal way and the hard way.  Go ahead and Petition, you have a zero chance of success.

hi ,i have seen many posts from people like you  down grading any one trying to get ahead through on line education .Have you ever tried it and what schools did you graduate? RON A. BBA-MBA

I graduated from Taft and have been an attorney for many years and I am online faculty at two graduate schools so I know what I am talking about.  When it comes to law, there is really only one online game in the US and those are the California registered distance learning law schools and the odds are at least 5-1 or worse against succeeding.

MASL will not fit the definition of a law school so you cannot qualify under D.C. App. R. 46.

It is not just that it is unaccredited but like NOVUS they are simply issuing pieces of paper (diplomas) without any oversight.

Further I do not think whoever runs either of these schools is actually an attorney.

I am trying to help you understand that you are being misled by your own desire to become an attorney.

Why pay more than 1500  for the privilege?  If you are going to attend anything other than an ABA brick and mortar law school,  you need to realize that you need to be ten times more competitive than the typical law school graduate.

Assuming you drank the MASL kool aid and really believe DC would let you take the bar, how would you finance the 26 in person credits at Touro or anywhere else that cost 40K?  That's straight cash since I don't think Uncle Sam lends money for non degree programs.

I am not sure why you have so much anger for MASL did you start there and get dismissed.Rule 46 clearly states graduate  from a non ABA  school.  Take 26 credits from a ABA  school AND YOU CAN SIT FOR THE DC BAR .This very clear .Schools like Novus or any of the Calif non ABA  schools all fit the same mold.Pass rates are all very very low for the BABY BAR and the BAR .Why spend thousands for some thing that most likely will not happen. The student needs to really spend 8 to 10 hours a day studing i rather spend $1500 and take my chances.There is no such thing as a quality non ABA phony Law School .Ron A BBA--   MBA

I repeat, NOVUS and MASL are not actually "Law Schools" because they are recognized by no one as degree granting institutions and their degrees do not qualify one to take a bar exam.  Can you produce an example of even one individual who qualified to take a bar anywhere in the US with a NOVUS or MASL degree? If not, do you aim to be the first? Do you think the DC Bar Examiners are so stupid that they will not check out these school's websites? 

On accreditation MASL skirts the issue and NOVUS give us this gem:

"Novus University is a Registered and Charted Private International Postsecondary Law School. Novus University Grants and Certifies Law Degrees under Corporate Educational Charter and the authority of the Novus University Board of Directors to graduates who meet School School of Law Graduate Requirements."

LOL! They are offshore diploma mills.  Reading their websites causes one to lose at least 20 IQ points.

"Sum ergo cogito; cogito ergo dubito"

How does a non EU citizen qualify for a training contract at the end of the degree without a work permit?

See if you can enroll at a non ABA California accedited law school, you sure the hell don't want to be a paralegal if you can be a lawyer instead.  Who wants to take orders the rest of their life from some lawyer who but for the fact they went to an easier law school is sitting in the big office with a window while you sit in a cubicle.  Any lawyer job is better than being a paralegal which is essentially a glorified clerk who fills out papers, looks things up, and does things the lawyer is too busy or important do to.  A so called indpendent parlegal is a form filler outter who sometimes tries to practice law without a license

You were good enough to get into law school.  Identify the character traits and/or vices that caused your downfall and address them.

Hmm, a careful check of their website reveals thay have no mailing address.

Even would be, wannabe attorneys, might be a little skeptical of that one?

When you apply to take the DC bar (after shelling out $40K to attend classes at Touro) how would you fill out the DC bar application I wonder.

How much you want to bet the address is "offhore?"

I have been doing my research and found MASL a good school for students who understands what they are getting.Not every one has the time, energy or money to go to Harvard or Princeton.Students can take the DC bar with Rule 46.There is a well know ABA LAW SCHOOL ON LONG ISLAND NY that will let you do this when you graduate MASL. Lets get off our high horse and stop bashing a true solution THAT HELPS people get what they  truely want .Ron A .MBA

Why don't you just state that Touro accepts students for a non matriculation program? However that does not guarantee the DC Bar will do anything but laugh at the MASL degree in the end.

However this is useful info for non ABA California law school grads who cannot pass the California Bar, and want to pay approximately $40,000 in fees to Touro for a chance at the second toughest bar in the country.

Talk about a Rube Goldberg "solution."
