Isn't the fact that there is *no* information informative?
I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah.

Yes this is true but I would still like to hear from people who went to the school or took the courses. I checked them out on the Better Business web site and they look clean. If this is a scam we should try and get as much information out on it as possible to prevent anyone from being burned. ;D

I just signed up with Novus.The intial interview was very professional Now that we are actually getting to the courses..i'm not so sure. I have been on several sites researching also and have not found anything negative. I have no way of keeping track or record of the transcript. They said the school has been around for ten years. Have  you signed up yet?

Novus is completely on the web.  It does not have a campus.

I was very tempted to sign up...but after reading the fine print I am having second thoughts about it.  Read the brochure carefully and you will see that it is not ABA approved nor does the school have any formal campus as other traditional schools that offer online courses.

It was my understanding that it was a sham law school. That thier degree does not allow you to sit for any bars and that the two owners live in Europe. I would not suggest it. Google them online.... and you will be able to locate the suits that were filed for the fraud.

I am a student at Novus Law School and have been for over 2 years ,I am seeking to BAR QUALIFY for the CA BAR by attorney supervised study ,I passed the Baby Bar with a C , I can say that Novus Law School has provided me with a great legal education . I read some fiction about Novus and Law suits and I am a private investigator and checked this school out completely before I enrolled and there is not one single law suit or complaint I could find .....I can not speak for every Novus student but 2 of my friends in the insurance business also completed Novus and their company paid, I am paying myself I have never had a call go unreturned and Samanatha Fisher my advisor has been there for me all the time.

I am a Law Student at Novus Law School and I'm reading your statement that it is your understanding that Novus is a sham law school, and then I'm reading where you misspelled "thier" degree does not allow you to sit for any bars and that the two of the owners live in Europe. You further claim that you can Google them online and you'll be able to locate lawsuits that were filed against them for fraud.

I personally know two of the professors that teach at Novus, as the president of the school and they live in California, where I live. I also know (and did Google) that there are no lawsuits filed against them at present, nor have there ever been. I have been an arbitrator and a mediator for over 15 years, and I'm not seeking to take a bar, but I do understand and it was explained to me how attorney supervised study works and how you can earn a degree and become an attorney by combining law study with attorney supervised study. I verified this with the American Bar Association, which Novus Law School provides a direct link to on their website.

In light of all this, I would say that your statements are either delusional or outright lies. I have no way of knowing why you would print such statements when any person can easily verify through the American Bar Association and by Googling as you suggested, that Novus is a Law School with an excellent reputation assisting students throughout the US and attorney supervised study and for specialized practice fields like mine.

Isn't Novus only for students in California?
