Online Law Schools / Re: Novus Law School

If you can learn on your own Taft is good otherwise Concorde. Ultimately, neither one will work unless you can devote 30 hours a week minimum and are willing to study full time for the baby bar. The odds are 5-1 against that you will pass the baby bar and 15-1 against you will pass the California bar. Unless you already work in the legal field, these are bad bets. If you somehow pass the bar, you will need to teach yourself how to practice law because no one will hire you.  You will also need to move to California if you expect to gain any experience with live clients.

In fact, it is so hard that unless there is some geographic or medical reason, a bricks and morter school is almost always better.

Yes, one can get a California law license via online or correspondence study but you will find that the successful students have a knack for wrote memorization.

Novus is not recognized by any state. Novus is not recognized by the Law Society of England and Wales. A Novus degree will not entitle one to practice law ever. And I should know because I am a graduate of Taft and licensed in the US and several Commonwealth jurisdictions.

I do not support the ABA but I do not go in for sovereign citizen nonsense .

By the way, they do not grant a JD in the UK - they grant a bachelors in law which is the equivalent of a JD even though the ABA claims a JD is the equivalent to a PhD which it is not.

This is clearly misleading:

Where is the ABA or the State Bars? They ought to get an an injunction against Novus instead of trying to make life miserable for non ABA graduates who have graudated from a legitimate law program. Novus proves the ABA is more concerned with maintaining its monopoly rather than actually protecting the consumer from fake law schools.

I am starting an external LLD program at UNISA (University of South Africa), does anyone have experience with UNISA or Leiden?

Graduated from Taft in 1991, passed the California Bar in 1992 and was getting court appointed public defender cases within 6 months, have since become a member of the DC Bar and licensed as a solicitor in England and specialize in international law:
