Someone who is investing three years in a FYLSE work around should get the scheme okayed in writing. And you are right I am an authority by virtue of being admitted to California bar via the correspondent route, practising 20 years and then being admitted to numerous other jurisdictions including England. However, I do apologize if I am annoying you; I am really genuinely interested if the California Bar Examiners would really OK an obvious dodge around their rules on online schools. Logically, it makes no sense to me that a foreign online law school grad with an online US LLM who has not qualified as a lawyer anywhere would be eligible to sit the Cal Bar without the FYLSE. Why would the English online LLB be superior to a California online JD? In fact, it would be inferior because much of English law is inapplicable in California. The equation does not add up in my opinion and if true exposes the California Bar Examiners to a well deserved lawsuit for discriminating against their own California online students.
