How do you know if there are any lawyers on there staff.Who reviews there work.?WHY IS CALIF the standard for non ABA SCHOOLS ? i THINK WITH ALL THE CALIF schools and the amount of students who get all the way to passing the REAL BAR the #s are not good.I think   WITH OUT GOING TO A ABA approved school your chances of be coming a lawyer in any state is very low..

Well who is on the faculty?  The website lists no one.  In fact who is the "dean" of the esteemed "law school?"

At a California registered distance learning school, I'd say the odds are at least 20% or better of passing the  bar if you get past the baby bar.  That beats no chance since  M*SL or N++VUS can't seem to name a single graudate who passed a bar, any bar.  Check Taft Law School - they list alumni who successfully passed the bar.

California is the default standard for distance and correspondence law schools because no other state has them.

The Director of MASL is Dr Paschal Baxter he has a linked in account.I also think he is graduate of a Calif law school.Novus is very expensive and in my opinion may not be worth it.Using your figures of a passing rate of 20% after passing the baby BAR which also has a very low passing rate does not bide well for the non ABA route to becoming a lawyer .

Dr. Paschal Baxter DC is a Chiropracter as has been reported here previously:

He also appears to be an inactive member of the NC Bar:

I'd take 20% over 0% anyday.

How about all the money it takes to go to these calif schools 20% is not great when 80% are laying out thousands.

Some of the California distance learning and correspondence law degrees are recognized by other academic instutions - Taft, California Southern, Southwestern, and Henley-Putnam are accredited by DETC.
Even if one does not pass the bar - the degree has some recognition as opposed to ones that don't or like MA$L never will.
