Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Graduation

That is not an answer to the question show me Novus Grads arrested.

The professor claimed to go a institution that he never attended. That is fraud, but getting a degree from Novus is not a crime.

Big difference.

You said Novus grads were arrested and went to jail. I really want that story.

Honestly, please find me that person that has gone to jail for putting Novus on their resume. That is a golden lawsuit.

Can you provide a link verifying these incarcerated Novus Students? If it has  actually happened I would be fascinated to learn more about it.

I don't think any legal employer would be fooled either by someone faking to have a law license, despite what happens on Suits.

Even if you did lie on it etc, I could not imagine any D.A. anywhere taking a exaggerating on resume case to criminal court. We would all be guilty of puffery on our resumes!

I find it highly unlikely anyone will go to jail for putting a school they attended on an application.

It may not be recognized by a state bar, but there is no way anyone is going to jail for applying to a job.

I think there are a few schools in Alabama that allow you to sit. I also know a California Bar School graduate petitioned the Massachusetts Bar to take the exam and was allowed. It does seem like a violation of the privilege & immunities clause to deny a lawyer in one state the opportunity to obtain a license in another.

There is always a step to get a license. You will need to fill out paperwork to get a license to practice.

You need to fill out paperwork to get a drivers license. I am not aware of any place you can just show up, but it might exist.

Well there are people two kinds of people in this world. The ones that make things complicated and the ones that don't.

This whole scenario sounds easily resolvable if it is in fact real, but you will not be the first law or the last law student/lawyer to overthink a simple matter.

If you are real I wish you the best of luck and hopefully you can find a way to simplify instead of complicate this matter.

I know D.C. also waiver for anyone that has passed a bar exam if you obtained a certain MBE score or have practiced law without discipline for 5 years. It is a Federal Territory and therefore even California  attorneys can waive into D.C.

I was offered a clerkship in Samoa after law school and considered it. I recall them simply allowing you to waive in if you were a member of a state bar, but like any Bar D.C. included there is a FEE!!

Hiring a lawyer does not automatically mean a lawsuit.

If you don't need the records to be a visiting student then why are you even discussing this.

Also, why not just get the records now?

I get the sense this is just a flame, but it is entertaining.

If you want to be a lawyer I don't think your parents should be involved in the decision making process.

It seems like you have an excuse for every step.

You are saying these records are necessary to get to a new school.

The school however, is not giving you these records, because you are such a burden to them that they will not comply with the law.

You have an attorney that could get the records, but you don't want to use him/her.  Having a lawyer does not mean your going to sue they simply be your point of contact and record keeper.

This whole situation is very easy to resolve if you actually want it to be resolved.

However, you have to take an action not say why every proposed action won't work.

If you want to sit on the internet and say it is not fair it is your life, but if you actually want this to happen it is up to you to make it happen.
