are there any states that would? all that is needed is 1 state..esp. since this school has been approved by the state.

Was Barkley approved by the state of Kentucky? I saw nothing in your original post that indicated that - if so it is a state accredited school non ABA school.  I think the first step then is to confirm with the Kentucky Bar Examiners or whoever accredits law schools in Kentucky that this is true and get something in writing from the State of Kentucky.

With that letter hand you can then check the bar admission rules for each and every US state and territory regarding state accredited non ABA schools as opposed to non state accredited non ABA schools which are the DL schools we deal with this in this forum  - good luck.

Since it uses a CA mailing address wouldn't that be standing to do file a claim in federal  court ?

You mean jurisdiction not standing.

Collecting the judgment has nothing to with either, it is how you get paid which one likely wouldn't under this hypothetical because the defendants would likely just be scofflaws who would set up shop the next day under another name.

Many people are under the assumption that courts enforce civil judgments, they can be used to help collect, but we do not have debtors' prison and deadbeats, including a lot of people with credit card debt judgments, never pay.

It could impact collection if you had jurisdiction(thanks for the correction there) in CA to collect on their accounts in CA and not just Marshall Islands. Especially if you jointly sued the owners who live in CA.

What makes you think they bank in the RMI?  Not likely, the corp. is just supposedly based there. The owners would likely default, pop up somewhere else, and you would have a worthless judgment for your efforts.

Are you under the illusion that being incorporated and having a website makes one a legitimate business?

I said that their money would be in CA. Please reread.

OK, when you pass the bar, you go sue them, end of story.

So you just don't want to. You could have said that instead of making it sound impossible.
