Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Law school bible wanted.

I agree with GovLaw.  You might not need the Law School Bible.  I went to the website, lawschoolbible.com and discovered that much of the information Finley offers is already available online.  He talks about the California schools, foreign law schools, and law office study.  You can discover that information yourself on your day off.

I just read an e-mail from admin at the University of London.  There are no monthly payments.  But, for the first year 746 plus 25 per course is all you pay up front.  The other 511 is paid when you are ready to take a test.   It is more common in Europe and Malaysia to earn the LLB through distance learning.  So, if they want to practice here, they normally sign onto an LLM program somewhere.  Why would it be any different for an American with an LLB?

223
It has just occurred to me that it's possible for an American to earn the LLB from the University of London.  Then attend school to earn the LLM for those with foreign law degrees and become eligible to sit for the bar exam.   I'm sticking with my original plan.  But, those of you out there who are not tired of monthly payments to an online law school might consider that route.

10-4.

Without taking courses at another school approved to teach by the University of London, the registration fee is 746.  The registration supplement per subject is 25 (I did 25 4).  The continuing and exam fees are 305 and 511 per year.  All those fees added up come to 1662.  So, we would pay $2515 for the first year.  I think it could even be paid on a monthly basis.

226
We are not eligible to sit for a bar exam in any state with a law degree from England, or any foreign country.  Attorneys from overseas have to take an LLM course designed to teach them American law.  Then, after the earn that degree, they can sit for a bar exam in the state in which they earned the LLM.  I looked at the University of London.  I saw a much higher price.  I will check it out again.  You might have to learn legal writing on your own.

You all have helped me to decide against signing up with Novus.  I will just stay with the online paralegal program and sit for the NALA certification exam, here in Tampa, in 2011.  Thanks.

I have more than 180,000 in federal student loans because I earned 3 degrees from different schools.  I can only get financed through private loans with a co-signer.  Additionally, I was in law school for a year during 1987-1988.  As a result, law schools in Florida won't allow me to even apply.  I looked for cheaper ABA accredited law schools.  None are as cheap as Novus.  I also studied for a year with California Southern School of Law.  I did not pass the FYLSX.  I did not have enough money to return to California to take the test again.  I don't understand it being illegal to list Novus on a resume.  Please go into further detail.  I am interested in being a practicing attorney for ego purposes.  I am currently enrolled in an online paralegal program.  The latter will meet my financial needs just as much as being an attorney would.  Has anyone ever seen the material that students learn from at Novus?

I plan to start studying under Novus Law School in August.  Is there any new news about this school as far as quality of education is concerned?  I am unable to attend an ABA school because I have reached the limit for federal student loans.  I know that Novus is unaccredited.  Has anyone put Novus Law School on his/her resume?  How do you like the mentors?  Are you reading actual court opinions or are they summaries.
