Don't hold your breath, the law schools have a vested interest in keeping you on the hook for 3 years. In fact all one really needs is a Bachelors in law as in England.

Just like our stupid inches and gallons; the ABA stranglehold on the legal education system in the US is ridculed as just plain dumb:
The only ones getting rich are overpaid law professors who can't hold a job except maybe as POTUS.

An online LLM could be utlilized by foreign attorneys seeking to qualify for the California and New York bars. Whether it is of use to anyone else to qualify for the bar is really questionnable in my opinion.

NOV*S & MA+L (no SEO from me) will not do anyone any good except their non lawyer owners who will laugh all the way to the bank. If someone wants to learn about the law, do not give money to make believe schools, go get an accredited Masters in Legal Studies from Kaplan or other accredited online schools. Any so called professional would not waste their money on an unaccredited offshore " law school" and if they did I would not want them within 10 feet of my tax return or any other document since they have shown the inability to understand that a law school must at least have some connection to lawyers and the law to call itself a law school.
Also anyone who tries to use "European Court oral arguments" in the US will get their hat handed to them by the court.
And I am sure those dancing estate planners or whatever were dancing alright after they got charged for unlicensed practice of law for the crap trusts they talked people into buying.
But you are right, going down this road may indeed get one quality time in a court room.

I wouldn't count on any law firm or anyone else hiring you at age 51. The firms know they can't abuse a 51 year old the same way as they can a 27 year old. Better be ready to go solo and specialize in a field where there is a steady flow of paying customers like Workers Comp, SSA Disability, or Veterans Disability and fewer attorneys chasing the business.

They want to escape the FYLSE because they have no hope of passing it apprently.

MASL and NOVUS are not just unaccredited, they are not actually "law schools." Unaccredited law schools registered with the Cal Bar are the only ones from which can qualify a student for the FYLSE. MASL and NOVUS cannot qualify for registration because they do not even meet the minimum standards for registration which are actually quite lengthy.
However anyone who cannot discern that MASL is a crock from their website which lacks even a physical address; is not likely to pass the FYLSE in any event.

MASL and NOVUS are not accredited law schools, there are no lawyers or bars associated with these operations. You cannot take a bar, you cannot become a lawyer anywhere with their degrees and your credits are worthless. To qualify for the FYSLE is quite simple enroll at an online law school registered with the California State Bar. if I started a law school in my garage today, it would have more credibility than MASL and NOVUS because at least I have a law license (though wouldn't have one for long if the cal bar got wind I was passing out phony diplomas).

Madness! MASL is not associated with any attorneys, law professors, or anyone vaguely connected with practising law or passing bar exams. if you want to read outlines, buy them and read them, you do not need to enrich anyone else in order to read a book. If you want a bogus law degree you don't need MASL, instead go make one up in a word processing program, print it out and award it to yourself.
