I will be graduating in a few weeks with my LLB and I started 3 yrs ago. I paid slightly under 5k for the entire program and was able to keep my six figure career. To sit for the bar exam in California, you will need a LLB and LLM to sit unless you are an licensed attorney it can be from a civil or common law country. Whether a 2 yr LLB degree will work check with the bar examiners. In the last 2 yrs more and more LLM in US / American Legal Studies programs are popping up that gear you to take Cali bar. Three years ago there was only one online LLM program in US studies available. USC has an online LLM program in American Legal Studies starting this fall and they have spring enrollments and the program can be completed in 12 mos. I also have a good friend they just passed the Cali bar on their 2nd try, they just received notice a few weeks ago and they have an online LLM from FCSL and they have a civil law LLB and they were not a lawyer prior to enrolling in the LLM program. I will reveal some additional info before the year is out that I will share.
