Again, I refer you to my previous post
it pains me how simple this is

Sorry what is your point?  Am I supposed to be afraid of the California Bar Admissions Committee for asking them on the record about Novus?   I think they are a great agency, they literally answered me the same day.  I can't say the same for the CIA; they forced me to sue them to get records.

The notice states that the communication may contain privileged information for the intended recipient, and that disclosure "by others" is prohibited.

Since Jonlevy was the intended recipient, I think this means he is free to disclose it's contents. Others cannot disclose it without his permission. Read the notice more carefully.

Bingo, you win the prize.

This the one I use on my emails:

This e-mail is confidential. If you are not the intended recipient then you must not copy it, forward it, use it for any purpose, or disclose it to another person. Instead please return it to the sender immediately. Please then delete your copy from your system.

Reality check dude - if some boilerplate scares you; how you going to take on the DA's officer or file a civil rights lawsuit for a client?  Get out there and read some Gerry Spence or Tony Serra:

Fresh - do you know what email legal boilerplate is?  It is unenforceable, no court to my knowledge has ever upheld it yet lawyers and others still use it anyway.  Also, what does it mean in this context?  I asked for information from a public agency.  They answered me.  I am under no obligation to keep the information private since it was addressed to me.  Start thinking like a lawyer and you may get there some day.

LOL!  That is boilerplate.  I made a request for public information under The California Public Records Act.

Why ask California? Because NOVUS uses a California phone number and does business in that state, so California has jurisdiction over them.

Dear     :

We regret to inform you that Novus Law School does not have degree-granting authority from any recognized U.S. educational entity, nor does attending Novus allow anyone to sit for any bar exam in the United States. 

A listing of schools, including online law schools, that are recognized by the State Bar of California may be found on our website at  Requirements to sit for the bar exam in California may be found at

Best Regards,

However there are rules about making false claims:

"The Novus Juris Doctor - JD program allows the opportunity for bar admission through attorney supervised study and DC bar admission or through Specialized Administrative & National Courts, Agencies & Tribunals."

Attorney Supervised Study would have nothing to do with Novus, these plans operate independently under their own rules.

DC Bar Admission - does have a clause that non  ABA law school grads can qualify to take the bar qualify with an additional 26 hours ABA study BUT since Novus is not registered as a law school with any state, it is not a law school just because it chooses to call itself one.  In my opinion this is a false statement unless Novus can point to a single graduate who qualified to take the DC bar.

Specialized Administrative & National Courts, Agencies & Tribunals - WOTF is a National Court or Tribunal?  Administrative agencies do not confer attorney licenses.  One cannot become a member of a USDC without passing the bar - so what is this balderdash?

The Director of MASL is Dr Paschal Baxter he has a linked in account.I also think he is graduate of a Calif law school.Novus is very expensive and in my opinion may not be worth it.Using your figures of a passing rate of 20% after passing the baby BAR which also has a very low passing rate does not bide well for the non ABA route to becoming a lawyer .
Novus is dirt cheap, and also NOT ABLE TO SIT THE BAR. So the stats you gave are straight up lies. If anyone sits the bar with Novus they qualified WITHOUT it anyways.

Now I have to ask, does anyone have a link to this "school" that is compared to the illegal fake school with fake stats?
Sorry to multiple post on this, but this is just sad

I am really curious how these so called law schools can operate at all.  Apparently anyone, even a non lawyer, can set up a law school and make claims with impunity?  I thought education was a regulated field, especially law.
