Sovereign Citizen? Online law school? LLB loophole?
« on: November 15, 2011, 03:10:42 AM »
Don't you think online law school is similar to "sovereign citizen" thinking?

Instead of trying to beat the American government and complaining about having to attend an American ABA approved law school, why not just get an online LLB from a foreign law school and bring it back to the USA and take any state bar within the U.S.A.  The USA accepts foreign LLB law degrees as long as they are from a common law country such as UK, Ireland, Australia, etc... Case solved.

Just memorizing and synthesizing American law is  challenging enough.  Can you imagine internalizing British law and then turn around and translate all that back into American law?  It can be done, though.  I saw a program about an American guy who studied law in England and passed the New York bar exam.  His wife or girlfriend killed him. 

I, myself, am too partial to American law.  It's the best the human race has to offer.

The FBI considers self-proclaimed sovereign citizens domestic terrorists.

That is not a loophole, there is no loophole. ABA law school is the easiest and quickest way to become a US lawyer.

Just the fact alone that you try to link obeying a law with being beyond the law, says all that needs to be said here.
