Distance Education Law Schools / Re: LLB (Graduate Entry)
« on: December 05, 2014, 08:39:12 AM »
I live in the US and I did my LLB distance learning. I did it for a number of reasons, one is cost savings. I earned my degree and the total tuition was less than 5k for 3 years. This in it self was a bargain.  I don't know what the future will hold. I will be starting my US LLM in Jan 2015.

I always wanted to become a lawyer.  I have a successful career and I'm in my 40's.  Quitting my job and uprooting my family is not an option to go back to  the school the traditional way and spending 100K on law school is not an option at my stage in life.  I did my research well in advance and decided to get a my law degree from overseas which cost me slightly under 5K for the entire 3 yr program.  So I was able to get a degree from a well respected UK law school at a price that you will spend on a luxurious vacation.  I'm now going to get an LLM, and I'm going to use tuition reimbursement from my organization which will lower my out of pocket cost.  In a nut shell, I will have spent less than 20K for my legal education in which I will have received 2 law degrees for that price.

I've been accepted to an LLM program at ABA school. Also, I had my LLB degree evaluated from an approved agency on the California Bar Examiner list.  Yes, I was admitted to program with the distance learning LLB and no I didn't have to be a lawyer to be admitted to the program.

The current rules are pretty clear.   If you are a licensed attorney it can be common law or civil law you can sit for the Cali bar and by-pass taking the additional 1 yr education at ABA, California approved school, or the LLM.   If you have a foreign law degree and not a lawyer then you will need to complete the additional education requirements.  You also have to get your foreign law degree evaluated by one of the approved agencies on the California Bar Examiners list to determine your education equivalency.

I plan to attend a LLM at a ABA approved school.  For the California Bar, the LLM can be from an ABA approved school or a California approved law school.

I had my LLB evaluated from a credential evaluation agency that is on the California Bar Examiner list of approved evaluators.  The results came back today and the overall summary of my evaluation is that my LLB from the UK is equivalent to a JD in the United States.

Washington State amended their bar admission rules. The rules are clear and to the point.
